Our corporate partners provide us with the opportunity to extend our reach to more people. In addition to a financial or in-kind contribution, each of these organizations gets their employees involved in raising awareness about the Arlington Life Shelter. Arlington Life Shelter thanks its current corporate partners for their support; we are grateful for their commitment to the fight to end homelessness.
