Bank of America, Investing in the Homeless

On November 13, 2016, Bank of America presented Volunteers of America Chesapeake a check for $20,000 to enhance our new Diversion Homeless Services Program in Arlington, VA.

The diversion program, which is housed in our Residential Program Center will allow us to help more homeless individuals achieve self-reliance by developing a system to identify alternative housing arrangements and financial assistance.

The program serves as the referral point for all Arlington County emergency shelters serving single adults and families.

Facts we’re proud of

–In fiscal year 2016, we served more than 900 Arlingtonians experiencing or at-risk for homelessness

–Last year, we helped 50 people obtain permanent housing

–Next year, we’re launching our own permanent supportive housing community in the area

–In addition to homeless services, RPC provides non-medical detoxification and substance abuse recovery options all under one roof

We’re so honored Bank of America has decided to invest in our program and Arlington County’s most vulnerable citizens.
