HCA tops challenge to raise $15k

HCA walk 2023

UPDATED Oct. 17: The following plea from Erica Schwarz, executive director of the Housing Corporation of Arlington (HCA), has been updated.

A generous Arlington supporter earlier challenged the HCA to raise $15,000 by Oct. 15 for its homelessness-prevention program and the backer would match it.

On Oct. 17, Schwarz reported that HCA has raised $16,266, "so we will get the full match.

If you didn't get a chance to donate yet, you still can give. One hundred percent of your gift will become homelessness-prevention grants to help Arlington residents remain stably housed. 


“Before my meeting at HCA, I was depressed and didn’t know what to do. But after I left the HCA office, I felt so confident.” 
- Jamille, Homelessness Prevention Program grant recipient

Today, Jamille is stable in her home. And as an extension of the Homelessness Prevention Program, HCA continues to help Jamille. She has a progressive illness and can no longer work full time, so HCA is helping her sign up for benefits to help cover expenses now that she has less income. Jamille is also on HCA's growing wait list --- maybe someday she'll become one our tenants in a permanently affordable apartment.
