Review for Arlington Street People's Assistance Network, Inc., Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a volunteer with A-SPAN for over 15 years. I worked on the Homeless Bagged Meals delivering meals to Arlington street homeless. I also serve on the Board of Directors and on various Board Committees

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

witnessing their successes. A-SPAN, through caring and persitent outreach and constant support, has been able to help chronically homeless people get into and STAY in supportive housing. No one does it better!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

supporting the organization as it evolves to meet the changing needs and work with best practices. i.e. working in the current financial climate to keep people from becoming homeless when they have a financial crises.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The staff is the most caring, supportive and "go the extra mile group" I have ever seen. They literally do whatever it takes to help a homeless client. Hundreds of volunteers provide bagged meals at two locations 365 days of the year-including blizzards

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Move so many more people into housing and reach even more people before they become homeless. We could get a year-round shelter where services could be provided - a fabulous one stop shop!

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
