Arlington for Everyone is a campaign of the Alliance for Housing Solutions, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization seeking to increase the supply of affordable housing in Arlington and Northern Virginia.
We support an Arlington for Everyone, in which people from all walks of life are welcomed to live and fully participate in our community.
We believe that Arlington is a greater place because of its openness to inclusivity and dedication to social and economic diversity.
We recognize that creating and maintaining a variety of housing options and a commitment to long-term affordability in Arlington is essential to this diversity.
The Arlington for Everyone campaign seeks to raise community awareness about the scarcity of affordable housing across the county. As housing becomes less affordable, we lose part of what makes Arlington such a strong community - diversity, ability of people in all job types (nurses, firefighters, social workers, teachers, students) to live and work here.
