The Arlington-Alexandria Coalition for the Homeless (AACH) is a private nonprofit organization that provides transitional housing and support services to homeless families and women in Arlington County and the City of Alexandria in Virginia. Created in 1985 by citizens, AACH works in coordination with public agencies, businesses and community groups to give homeless people the support, shelter, counseling and employment training they need to regain self-sufficiency. The organization’s core programs are designed to help families secure permanent housing, increase household income, pay down debt, reestablish credit, manage household budgets, save money, and learn new parenting skills. More than 200 volunteers provide a variety of invaluable services to AACH, from tutoring children to working at the front desk. A volunteer board of directors, made up of citizens from Arlington and Alexandria, direct the activities of AACH.
