Catholic Charities Diocese of Arlington operates two housing programs:
St. Margaret of Cortona Transitional Residences serves homeless families with the time and support they need to reestablish independence after they have exited an emergency shelter. Participating families are provided with low-income housing and varying levels of assistance during the precarious twelve to twenty-four months following their departure from an emergency shelter. St. Margarert of Cortona staff and volunteers offer a wealth of Life Skills and Financial Literacy classes, employment training, and personal case management to residents. Participants recognize their worth and strengths in private apartments allowing them to move toward self sufficiency in an environment that values their dignity.

Founded in 1973, Christ House provides food to the hungry, shelter to the homeless, and clothing to those in need. Christ House helps individuals recognize their abilities, develop self-sufficiency, and maintain their self-respect. It offers limited assistance to individuals needing help to pay their rent, utility bills, prescription bills, and other expenses. Our shelter offers transformative programs to move the men from homelessness to independent living. Learn more about Christ House here.
