On Tuesday, Dec. 10, at 7 p.m., in City Council Chambers, Alexandria Mayor Justin M. Wilson will present members of the Alexandria Community Services Board (CSB) with a proclamation for 50 years of community service and support.

The CSB’s mission is to provide effective and essential safety net services that measurably improve or maintain the quality of life for Alexandrians, and support self-determination, recovery and resiliency for residents affected by mental illness, developmental disabilities and substance use disorders.

In 1968, the Virginia General Assembly established Community Services Boards, and the Alexandria Community Services Board was subsequently established on March 25, 1969.

“The doors of Alexandria Community Services Board have been open to thousands of Alexandrians for over five decades, and they’ve stayed dedicated to their mission: to improve the lives and well-being of others in need,” said Mayor Wilson.

The 50-year anniversary also highlights the yearly actions of more than 25 programs, serving more than
4,300 Alexandrians.

The CSB — a group of 12 volunteers appointed by Alexandria City Council — is responsible for policy and budget direction, project development, and program oversight for all City of Alexandria mental health, intellectual disability and substance use services.
