August is a great month to learn more about Koinonia



 Koinonia's Vision, Mission, and Guiding Principles
Koinonia is a community of sharing.

​​​Koinonia is a Greek word that means spiritual fellowship and sharing with others. It is pronounced Coin-ah-knee-ah.

To learn more about Koinonia, visit their website at http://www.koinoniacares.org/.

KOINONIA'S VISION:  Koinonia’s vision is to enhance the Franconia/Kingstowne community by channeling generosity toward local needs.

KOINONIA'S MISSION:  The Koinonia Foundation is a faith-based organization, called to support adults and children in the Franconia/Kingstowne area. Koinonia helps to meet challenges of daily living by providing food, clothing, learning and emergency financial assistance to qualified clients regardless of beliefs. Koinonia is the sole nonprofit organization recognized by Fairfax County to provide both short-term emergency assistance and self-sufficiency services to citizens of the Greater Kingstowne/Franconia area.

KOINONIA'S GUIDING PRINCIPLES: Koinonia was founded by Christian Churches, in the generous spirit of sharing, to help those in need. Our service to the community is based on the following guiding principles:

1. To treat all people with dignity and without discrimination
2. To give a hand up not a hand out
3. To give hope and spread joy
4. To act as a clearinghouse for community resources
5. To value our staff and volunteers
