During these challenging and stressful times, I wanted to reconnect with you as your School Social Worker for Neabsco.  Although our school building is closed, I am here to assist you, the students and their families.   Please email me families (after you get their consent) or have them email me directly, if they are in need of assistance for basic needs and/or mental health consultation/referral.  

Below is a listing of local resources for emergency mental health, food, homelessness, health, transportation and legal services.  

I hope to update resources through an email to staff as they become known to me.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me.  Thank you – Heather Moul, LCSW


Emergency Mental Health Resources

PWCS cares deeply about students’ emotional well-being during their time away from school.  If a student is in need of emotional support during this time, please feel free to send an e-mail to studentsupportservices@pwcs.edu.  A school mental health or health professional will answer and offer virtual support to students to the best of their ability.  This e-mail is not to be used for emergency situations as it will not be monitored 24 hours a day. If a student is ever in an emergency, he/she is encouraged to call 911 or utilize one of the resources listed below:

Resources for Unsheltered and Homeless During COVID-19

Those experiencing homelessness or the threat of homelessness should call the County’s Coordinated Entry System (CES) at 703-792-3366. The CES ensures people have fair and equal access to homeless services. The CES team will quickly identify, assess, refer and connect people to resources based on their strengths and needs. CES operating hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The Overnight Shelter for adults is now located at the A. J. Ferlazzo Building Gymnasium (15941 Donald Curtis Dr., Woodbridge) in order to maintain social distancing. It is open from 6:30 p.m. to 7 a.m. for 48 participants. Meals are provided, and showers are available. Transportation is provided every day at 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. from the permanent location of the Overnight Shelter to the Ferlazzo Gym; and at 6:45 a.m. from the Ferlazzo Gym to the Bill Mehr Drop-In Center.

The Bill Mehr Drop-In Center is still operating at its permanent location, 14716 Potomac Mills Road, Woodbridge, from 7 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., Monday through Saturday. To help maintain social distancing, up to 10 participants are allowed into the center at one time. There is a waiting area outside that provides shelter from the outdoor elements that also is set up to maintain social distancing. Meals and self-serve laundry are available. Showers are available for those who were not at the Overnight Shelter. Persons with counseling or treatment needs are provided a room with a phone for virtual appointments.

 

Health

The Health District has set up a COVID-19 Call Center at 703-872-7759 where people can get information related to COVID-19. The phones are staffed seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. If someone is experiencing a medical emergency, call 9-1-1.

 

Transportation

OmniRide Local and Metro Express is operating fare free. Fares are free on OmniRide Local and Metro Express services during the pandemic to minimize interactions between bus operators and riders and allow customers to board quickly and self-distance more effectively. Commuters on OmniRide Express buses must pay fares using a SmarTrip card – no cash is accepted.
