Beyond Assistance

In a world where support is often synonymous with temporary relief, we recognize the importance of addressing the root causes, fostering resilience, and creating lasting positive change. In Arlington County alone, 29% of families struggled with income inadequacy in 2021. At Arlington Thrive, our commitment goes beyond providing assistance; we are dedicated to empowering families through a range of comprehensive services, unlocking the tools for lasting prosperity.

Empowering families requires more than a one-size-fits-all approach. It involves recognizing the individual strengths and challenges of each family and providing them with the tools necessary to achieve stability and thrive in our community. Whether it’s budgeting, career development, or goal setting, our Community Navigator works closely with individuals to build financial literacy and a solid financial foundation that extends far beyond immediate needs.

Supporting families involves recognizing the importance of quality childcare. Our childcare services not only offer immediate relief but also contribute to families’ long-term well-being. By ensuring access to reliable childcare, we empower parents to pursue educational and professional opportunities.

At Arlington Thrive, we are not just a service provider; we are a partner in the journey towards lasting prosperity. Our approach is rooted in the belief that empowered families contribute not only to their own well-being but also to the overall strength and resilience of our communities.

Our Community Navigator worked directly with Rachel, a single mother to a 9-year-old son with a disability, who sought help from Arlington Thrive to navigate local resources and achieve short-term goals. Through the program, she set and achieved two significant goals: connecting with mental health professionals and working towards a medical billing and coding certification. With Arlington Thrive covering the certification class costs, Rachel is on track to secure a more stable job, leading to greater economic stability for her and her son in the future.

Together, we can break the cycle of temporary assistance and build a future where families are equipped with the tools they need to thrive independently. Empowerment is not a singular act; it’s a continuous process. Let’s empower families, transform lives, and build a more resilient and prosperous future for all.
