A-SPAN serves adults in Arlington who are homeless or facing homelessness. Many of our clients are unemployed or under-employed, and have little to no income. According to the 2014 Point-In-Time Count conducted in Arlington County, 62% of the homeless population is unemployed, and of those who are working, only 37% have full-time jobs. Furthermore, 83% of the homeless population live on less than $1,000 per month and 63% live on less than $500 per month.
While there is no longer an Employment Specialist position at A-SPAN, as Housing Focused Case Managers, we refer our clients to the Arlington County Employment Center located at the Department of Human Services.
