Welcome Home, William!

This week's Monday move-in story spotlights William in Arlington, VA.

William spent three years on the streets in Arlington, VA. At age 62, he had already outlived the life expectancy of someone experiencing homelessness, and he worried for his health and personal safety. Last month, with the help of A-SPAN, the organization leading the 100,000 Homes Campaign in Arlington County, William moved into a permanent apartment where he can lock his door and get the safe, comfortable rest he deserves. He is pictured above with his case manager, Ashley.

Welcome home, William!

(A-SPAN's terrific efforts to house their most vulnerable homeless neighbors have helped catapult Arlington County into the 2.5 Percent Club. We encourage you to get to know them and consider supporting their work!)
