Thanks to you the new shelter will provide:

  • Seven family bedrooms to support families, women, and children increasing space for 28-35 more individuals.
  • Classroom and small meeting room space which will allow other agencies and volunteers to come and provide needed services and programming for our residents including employment information and training.
  • Space for residents to remain in the shelter on weekends and daytime when not working to receive even more services and eliminate the need for them to be on the street, in the parks, or businesses.
  • A computer lab for training to improve technology skills which can lead to higher paying jobs.
  • Expanded programming and space for children including a state-of-the-art, outdoor playground built as the centerpiece of the new building.
  • Separate rooms will be available for infants/toddlers, children, and teens.
  • Expanded and upgraded kitchen and dining facilities to provide more efficiency in preparing and serving meals to residents.

Thank You for helping us reach our
$5.2 million Goal!

While we have reached our initial goal of $5.2 M, there are still funding opportunities and needs remaining. Our focus will now shift to offsetting the increased construction costs and need to ensure an operating reserve is in place. The new updated, increased space will allow for additional programming to help serve more of our neighbors experiencing homelessness which will require additional operating funds.

The generosity and support that continues to be shown by individuals, such as you, and the community of Arlington, is why we feel confident in our efforts to fill these needs. Thanks to you for your support.
