Bridges to Independence Arlington - Sullivan House

Emergency shelter for families and single females is provided through an agreement with Bridges to Independence. Sullivan House is a 50-bed facility in a County-owned building.

The program provides shelter and case management services to homeless families leading to employment, permanent housing, and achieving self-sufficiency.

Bridges to Independence (b2i) is Northern Virginia's leading provider of services for homeless women/families and those at risk. We offer a continuum of aid and support for all family members, helping them attain stability and move forward into self-sufficiency. Prevention is our other priority  reaching out to at-risk families and helping them avoid homelessness in the first place.

Sullivan House, b2's emergency shelter, provides families with a safe, supportive place to live for three to four months. The shelter, with ten one- and two-bedroom apartments, can accommodate up to 14 families at a time. After their shelter stay, four out of every five families are able to move into longer-term rentals with ongoing b2i services.
While residing at Sullivan House, all family members receive intensive assessment, counseling, and referral. Challenges run the gamut: eviction, medical conditions, domestic violence, substance abuse, traumatic brutality in their home countries, school issues, parenting problems, and more.
From the start, staff also begins tackling another area considered crucial for future success money management. A detailed budget is worked out with each household, and any wages or benefits are carefully allocated. Along with housing stability, b2i sees financial literacy as a fundamental of self-sufficiency.
