What is the GFSC?

With support of the Great Falls Citizen Association, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved Great Falls Senior Center Without Walls (GFSC) in September 2012. The Commonwealth of Virginia established GFSC in November 2012.  GFSC is now incorporated in the State of Virginia.  GFSC is partnered with the Fairfax County Department of Neighborhood and Community Services in all ventures and events.

While there is no brick and mortar building, the GFSC meets at the River Bend Club and other local places in Great Falls.
