Shandra Niswanter, Development Mgr, Arlington Thrive
 

Arlington Thrive is the only organization in Arlington County, Virginia that provides same-day, emergency financial assistance to County residents who experience sudden financial crisis such as temporary unemployment or illness. Learn More
 

Arlington thrives when:

  • Its residents meet their basic needs.
  • Neighbors help neighbors in need.
  • We stop homelessness before it begins.
  • Children sleep in their own beds in their own homes.
  • Residents are not forced to decide between seeking medical care and paying the electric bill.
  • Elderly people enjoy a comfortable retirement, rather than the insecurity of not knowing whether they can pay the next month’s rent.
