On Monday, October 25th at 2 p.m., the Arlington Community Foundation will be holding a virtual panel discussion to discuss the 2021 Safety Net Arlington report and to dive a little deeper into our collective story.
About the Report
The 2021 Safety Net Arlington report highlights the experiences of 21 Arlington nonprofits who partnered closely and convened frequently to address the historic challenges of 2020-2021. Since the start of the pandemic, these safety net organizations have risen to meet innumerable challenges with the single purpose of ensuring people are safe and supported. Like every essential business, safety net nonprofits play critical roles in our community’s well-being and safety. Each of these 21 organizations was called upon to continue serving uninterrupted throughout this crisis, and to find the resources to do so. This report shares how these organizations have bound together with each other and the County to collectively rise to the challenges of this period marked by health, economic, and racial justice crises. In it, the leaders offer recommendations for moving forward as a community.
