Citizens of Arlington,

We all enthusiastically support the $4.2 million Hearts  to Homes Capital Campaign of the Arlington Life Shelter to bring additional space and services to homeless families, men, women, and their children.

Arlington is a very special community. Over the last 70 years it has grown through visionary leadership and the caring commitment of its citizens. Big things happen here because of the big hearts of Arlington who care and desire a better life for all citizens.

In a City of Kindness, Hearts of Arlington will make things happen.

Thirty years ago a group of citizens and faith communities joined together to provide shelter and services to citizens who have experienced a setback to have an opportunity to return to self-sufficiency. The Arlington Life Shelter program is designed to encourage its residents to work and develop the traits necessary to return to stability.

However, the demand for space and services has outstripped supply as the Shelter is full virtually every night. Many families and women and their children are turned away until a space opens up for them.

We would ask you to look into your Heart and join us in supporting the Hearts to Homes Capital Campaign with a gift from your Heart!
