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.
AACH is thrilled to announce that all eighty-one families that signed up to participate in the Holiday Hookup have been matched with sponsors.
Because of your generosity, 307 people will have a package to open this year. It’s impossible to quantify that happiness, but your contributions represent at least $23,025 that went straight to families in need. Keep up the good work!
If you haven’t given yet, please consider contributing a gift card or monetary donation. These funds provide emergency assistance throughout the year.

Before AACH, I moved from one location to another, because I was unable to afford the places I rented. There just was no affordable housing available, even though I worked every day. Although I am not one of your clients who became a homeowner (not yet anyway) or one who secured that $60,000/year job, I still feel like a success story because now I can provide a stable and nurturing environment for my children. Had it not been for AACH, this would not have been possible and I would like to say Thank You from the bottom of my heart.
