What is Share?


  • Share Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. To see our IRS Form 990 annual financial reports, click here

  • Though we are not religiously affiliated, we were established in 1969 by a coalition of local faith communities to help meet the emergency needs of our neighbors in McLean and the nearby areas of Northern Virginia.

  • We are an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff, no office, and no paid fundraisers, therefore, nearly all donations directly benefit our neighbors in need.

  • Last year we provided services to about 1,500 families including 4,000 household members, most of whom are children.

  • It currently takes more than 1000 volunteer hours per month to run our programs, so we are always recruiting new volunteers.

 The Neighbors We Serve

  • Our neighbors in need are economically distressed families and individuals, seniors living on limited pensions (often facing medical issues), impoverished immigrants, and victims of spousal abuse, as well as the homeless.

  • The neighbors we serve are referred to us from participating faith communities, county social services, and a number of non-profit groups serving special need groups (such as victims of spousal abuse or the formerly homeless).

  • Before being granted services, these neighbors are screened to ensure they fall within our service area and have an appropriate level of need. 

  • We serve the working poor, disabled persons, the homeless, recent immigrants and the elderly as well as those facing a crisis such as illness, job loss or other family emergency.
