Doorways: Concerned Arlington residents started Doorways in 1978 as a safe haven for families in crisis. The organization provides shelter, with a mission of helping people find a way out of homelessness, domestic violence and sexual assault. Although all in-person volunteer activities have a minimum age of 18, there are ways young ones can get involved. Twice a year, Doorways invites volunteers to sponsor a child—once before school starts, when you can help provide back-to-school supplies, and during the winter holidays, when you’re invited to make wishes come true for kids in need. Check the website for when sponsorship forms become available.
