Bridges to Independance

Bridges to Independence leads individuals and families out of homelessness and into stable, independent futures.To break the intergenerational cycle of poverty. History: A private, nonprofit organization, Bridges to Independence has been serving people experiencing homelessness since 1985 when we were founded as the Arlington-Alexandria Coalition for the Homeless. We started with a 20-bed shelter in Fairfax before moving to our present location in Arlington in 1989. Over the past 33 years we have expanded and strengthened our programs and built an extensive network of community partners, including public and private service providers, landlords, and local businesses.
