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, there are individuals and families who and are unaware of the resources available, who do not have a case manager to direct them to resources or who require additional resources after completing a program. To bridge this gap and facilitate access to additional support, we have established the Community Navigator Program.

Program Description

As an advocate for our clients, the Community Navigator will prioritize their individual needs and respond with tailored support. They will provide short-term case management, financial counseling, and guidance to enhance clients' earning capacity. By empowering individuals to budget effectively, save money, and improve their financial situation, you will play a crucial role in their journey towards long-term stability.

The Community Navigator Program will receive referrals from various trusted sources, including Arlington Thrive partner agencies, the Arlington Interfaith Network, and the Arlington County Department of Human Services. This collaborative approach ensures a comprehensive support system for our clients.

To maintain a high standard of care, the program will serve around 20-25 clients simultaneously, depending on the level of need. This client-centered approach allows us to provide focused support to individuals and families, addressing their unique challenges and helping them overcome barriers to stability.


At Arlington Thrive, our Community Navigator position is at the forefront of empowering Arlington residents for long-term stability. By offering individualized support, financial counseling, and bridging gaps in existing services, we strive to guide our clients towards a brighter future.
