Navigating Resources for Social and Economic Stability

Arlington County boasts a robust safety net, with public services, private agencies, and nonprofits working collaboratively to address various needs. However, some individuals and families remain unaware of the resources available, do not have a case manager to direct them to resources or require additional resources after completing a program. The Community Navigator Program exists to bridge this gap and facilitate access to additional support.
