Community Resilience

The Arlington Thrive Community Resilience Program serves as a vital lifeline for individuals and families in Arlington facing severe hardships. This program provides crucial information, referrals, and financial assistance that is accessible to Thrive Case Managers, individuals, and partner nonprofits. 

Information and Referral   

Arlington Thrive’s Information and Referral program plays a crucial role in connecting residents with the resources they need. Despite Arlington’s robust safety net, many individuals and families are unaware of available resources or lack a case manager to direct them. Our Emergency Assistance professionals are dedicated to guiding residents towards the support services that can make a difference in their lives. Whether it’s accessing public services, private agencies, or nonprofit assistance, Arlington Thrive serves as a beacon of hope and a bridge to a stronger, more resilient community. If you or someone you know requires assistance, send us an e-mail at: assistance@arlingtonthrive.org. 

We understand that life can be challenging and everyone needs support at some point. That’s why we’ve compiled an array of community resources to provide you with the help you need, even if we can’t assist directly. This assortment covers a range of areas and is not a comprehensive list, but we’ve made every effort to ensure you have access to the widest range of support available. 

Community Resilience Fund 

These limited funds can be used to address urgent needs, such as rent, utilities, and critical medical expenses. By offering immediate relief, we strive to nurture community resilience in the face of adversity. 

One Time Emergency Assistance for Individuals 

The Arlington Thrive Community Resilience Fund serves as a crucial lifeline for individuals and families experiencing severe hardships in Arlington. This essential one-time emergency support can be used to address a wide spectrum of urgent needs, including rent, utilities, and critical medical and dental expenses. By providing immediate relief, we aim to foster community resilience in the face of challenging circumstances. 

The Community Resilience Fund is open for the week until funds are exhausted and will reopen the following week. You must hold your request until the following week.  

Please note that we only provide assistance directly to vendors (landlords, utility companies, etc). 

Request One Time Assistance


Arlington Thrive’s Community Resilience Fund extends its support to nonprofit partners in the community who often lack the resources to fully serve their clients. We are committed to collaborating with these organizations to provide emergency relief and lasting solutions for our neighbors in need. Through our partner case managers, Arlington Thrive addresses a wide spectrum of urgent needs, including rent or security deposits, utilities, birth certificates, car repairs, dental care, driver’s licenses and IDs, eye exams and eyeglasses, medical expenses, moving assistance (available only for seniors and physically disabled individuals), generic prescriptions when possible, storage needs, tools for employment, and specialty-sized clothing or work uniforms. 

Partners can request funds on a first come, first served basis by accessing the request portal and completing the Fund Request form.
