Doorways for Women and Families creates pathways out of domestic violence and homelessness leading to safe and stable lives.
For most of us, the word "home" conjures images of warmth, happiness, and a sense of belonging. But what if the only place you had to call home was where someone was causing you and your children harm? What if home didn’t exist at all, and the only way to keep your children off the street was to sleep in a car or beg friend after friend for a couch? These situations affect more Arlingtonians than you might imagine. A safe home is the first step in moving out of harm’s way. It’s why we offer women and families a nurturing, confidential and secure home where they can escape from trauma. We work with each woman and family we serve to address the root causes of homelessness or violence and offer holistic services that provide the best chance for long-term success. The thought of ending homelessness and domestic violence is daunting, but what once seemed impossible, no longer is. Together, we can prevent violence, end homelessness, and build brighter futures for thousands of Arlington families.
