Support the Homelessness Prevention Grant Program

Since 2001, HCA has provided emergency financial support to Arlington households struggling with housing crises, all of whom were at risk of becoming homeless. These families are dealing with divorce, job loss, illness, domestic violence, death, health matters or other situations that drain energy and income. Arlington is one of the only communities in the local area with a safety net for families and individuals in danger of losing their housing.

HCA’s Homelessness Prevention Grant Program offers families a chance to move forward after a rocky month or two and avoid the street or the shelter system. It is is an irreplaceable safety net for households in crisis. This intervention approach is a more effective, more humane, and less expensive way to address the crisis of homelessness. HCA is proud to have pioneered this program to keep people housed.

In 2023 we are seeing a big jump in need demand for this program, which we expect will continue into 2024. Inflation and the end of COVID-era benefits means that many families are facing very tough times.

Thanks for your compassion!
