The Arlington 10-year plan to end chronic homelessness focuses its attention on serving a portion of the overall homeless population, what the US Department of Housing and Urban Development defines as Chronic Homeless. Nationally, it is estimated that the number of chronic homeless represents 10 percent of the overall homeless population.
We applaud the faithful and outstanding work performed by local Arlington Churches and faith-based organizations, nonprofits and generous private citizens that provide critical and essential care, emergency shelter and supportive services to the homeless in Arlington. We commend the Arlington Life Shelter, SafeHaven Women’s Shelter, Salvation Army, and the Community Enrichment Center for their outstanding work in providing shelter to Arlington’s homeless. Without their caring support and the generosity of the faith based community and concerned citizens the number of chronically homeless would be significantly higher.
