The Arlington-Alexandria Coalition for the Homeless, Inc. does more than offer shelter to homeless people, it provides them with a foundation to rebuild their lives. Created in 1985 by concerned citizens of Arlington and Alexandria, AACH works in coordination with public agencies, businesses and community groups to give homeless people the support, shelter, counseling and employment training they need to regain self-sufficiency.

Eat Well, Do Good

Pete's Pays it Forward

Pete’s New Haven Style Pizza has been raising a lot of “dough” in support of AACH! Teaming up with the Northern Virginia Apartment Association and apartment owners/managers, “Pizza Nite” is bringing GREAT pizza to Arlington, coupled with a means to do good. In a nut shell, Pete’s donates 50 pizzas per apartment which residents in turn purchase for a minimum donation of $10 per pie. (Typically, one-third will donate more.) 100% of the proceeds raised from designated “pizza events” go directly to AACH. By the end of 2014, Pete’s will have donated over 1.000 pizzas and raised over $10,000 on behalf of AACH!

Pete’s cares a lot and wants to give a lot. By ordering pizza for delivery or dining at Pete’s Clarendon location, Pete’s will be able to do more for the Arlington community and AACH. As a matter of fact, stop by Pete’s on “Turkey Trot Thursdays” June 19, July 17, Aug 14, Sept 18, Oct, 16, and/or Nov 13. Mention the Trot and 25% of your tab will go back to the Turkey Trot 5K which benefits AACH post-Thanksgiving!

The education [training] helped me earn more money and be in a career that I enjoy. The budget showed me what I was, at the beginning, wasting my money on and helps me stay focused toward my future goals.
