Since 1975, Arlington Thrive has been a front-line defense against homelessness, offering same-day emergency assistance to Arlington residents for rent, pharmacy and medical bills, food, utilities, and transportation needs (checks are made out directly to the creditor, e.g. landlord, medical provider, utility).
Arlington has a vulnerable population that is adversely and disproportionately affected by the economic downturn. The cost of living in this area is 40% higher then the national median amount. Those on fixed incomes and workers with low wages or reduced work hours find their incomes cannot provide for their daily needs. Those with limited education and limited job skills are more likely to be subject to lay-off or work cutbacks.
Your donation keeps countless families warm, safe, and at home.
