A-SPAN provides life-sustaining services for Arlington's homeless. Our mission is to provide permanent housing for this vulnerable population through outreach, support and relationships built on trust and respect.

Description:
A-SPAN is a community-driven organization whose aim is to provide the services necessary for the homeless of Arlington, Virginia to lead self-sufficient and healthy lives. A-SPAN accomplishes its goal by working with local government, business, religious and charitable institutions, and concerned individuals.

Our strategies include:
Meeting emergency needs including food and shelter;
Providing direct outreach, case management and employment assistance;
Advocating for and creating new programs to fill gaps in preventive, emergency and rehabilitative services; and
Increasing community awareness and involvement in ending homelessness.

History:
A-SPAN was started by concerned Arlingtonians in 1989 and was incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in 1992. A-SPAN estimates there are currently at least 900 people living on the streets of Arlington during the course of a year. A-SPAN continues to have a strong volunteer foundation and invites all individuals and groups to help guide people from the streets to health, homes, and jobs. Anyone who is concerned about homeless people in Arlington is welcome to join in A-SPAN's work, including those who are or have been homeless themselves.
