Eliza and her daughtersAs we celebrate Social Work Month, the theme “Social Work Breaks Barriers” couldn’t be more fitting for the work we do at Arlington Thrive. We are proud to share Eliza’s story.  She is a single mother who faced incredible challenges but found hope and support through our caring social work team.

Eliza is a loving mother who puts the safety and well-being of her daughters first. When she discovered that her landlord was harassing her older daughter, Eliza had to make the difficult decision to leave her home and find a new place to live. However, the process of finding an affordable rental unit in Arlington was overwhelming.

Thankfully, Eliza reached out to Arlington Thrive for help, and our dedicated social work team was there to offer her support and guidance. We provided her with counseling to help her cope with the trauma of the situation and assisted her in securing a new home by providing financial assistance for her security deposit and rent.

Eliza’s story is a testament to the resilience and strength of single mothers who face incredible challenges. Her unwavering commitment to her daughters and her determination to provide a safe and stable home for them are truly inspiring.

At Arlington Thrive, we are dedicated to breaking down barriers for individuals and families facing economic and social hardships. We believe that everyone deserves access to basic necessities like safe housing and that our community is stronger when we all work together to support each other.

Eliza’s story is a reminder of the importance of community support and the critical role that social workers play in providing assistance to those in need. With the help of our generous donors, Arlington Thrive is able to provide immediate financial assistance and support to individuals like Eliza when they need it the most.

As we celebrate Social Work Month this year, we recognize the valuable contributions of our social workers who work tirelessly to break down barriers and uplift those in need. Eliza’s story is a testament to the resilience and strength of single mothers, and we are proud to have played a part in helping her find hope and stability for herself and her family. Thank you for supporting Arlington Thrive and helping us make a difference in the lives of those who need it most.
