A-SPAN’s services begin with street outreach. Street Outreach Staff frequent wooded areas, parks, underpasses, abandoned buildings and other areas to meet with homeless people where they live. The latest Point In Time Survey conducted in Arlington revealed that 124 people are experiencing homelessness in the county as of January 2016. Street Outreach Staff provide clothing, blankets and personal hygiene supplies to people in need, people they initially find or those they regularly see.The provision of these items helps staff build relationships with clients over time, and then help them access higher-level services. Last year, A-SPAN provided care to 643 persons through our Street Outreach Program.
Outreach Staff are available to answer calls from concerned citizens regarding homeless individuals.
Please call A-SPAN at 703-228-7803 to get assistance.
A-SPAN provides Street Outreach in the Rosslyn area of Arlington through a partnership with and the support of the Rosslyn BID. This is an example of a community member getting involved to help one of Arlington’s most vunerable populations.
