Sam Kelly, Executive Director, Bridges To Independence

Bridges to Independence ( leads individuals and families out of homelessness and into stable, independent futures. They offer a continuum of aid and support for all family members, helping them attain financial security and move forward into self-sufficiency. As homelessness is often episodic, their other priority is working closely with former clients to ensure they are able to remain securely housed and do not fall into homelessness again. A private, nonprofit organization, Bridges has been working with and for homeless families since 1985, when we were founded as the Arlington-Alexandria Coalition for the Homeless.

Arlington Rotary Club Supports The Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC)

On the Fifth Monday, when they occur, the Arlington Rotary Club heads down to AFAC.  This past month, our chore included filling bags with food for distribution through back-packs at area schools.  Each bag had tuna, oatmeal, milk, juice and some treats!  In one hour, we assembled 190 bags.  Join us on the next "5th Monday" - May 29th.
