This event is presented by Community Lodgings, Bridges to Independence and Homestretch who all share a similar mission of providing homeless families with support and resources. The programs are designed to ensure families go from instability to self-sufficiency through transitional and affordable housing, youth education and mentoring, case management, therapy, employment training, and financial literacy.

Homestretch, an acclaimed 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization, makes self-sufficiency possible for dozens of homeless parents with children every year. In operation since 1990, Homestretch provides homeless families with safe housing in neighborhood homes while they progress through a rigorous two year program designed to build their finances, restore their health, improve their life skills, and launch them into careers. At the end of their time at Homestretch, families graduate from the program into permanent housing they can afford on their own income. And 95% of Homestretch families remain housed and employed years after exiting the program. To learn more about Homestretch visit www.homestretchva.org.
About Bridges to Independence
Bridges to Independence leads individuals and families out of homelessness and into stable, independent futures. A private, nonprofit organization, Bridges has been working with and for homeless families since 1985, when it was founded as the Arlington-Alexandria Coalition for the Homeless. We offer a continuum of aid and support for all family members, helping them attain financial security and move forward into self-sufficiency. As homelessness is often episodic, their other priority is working closely with former participants to ensure they remain securely housed and do not fall into homelessness again.
