Do you want to help keep Arlington a diverse and inclusive community? At AHS we do! In the spirit of the importance of affordable housing, we offered a training about the Arlington for Everyone campaign for this year's MLK Day of Service on January 15th. The campaign is designed to spark a community dialogue about the importance of housing affordability and housing options for the future of Arlington. In the training, we provided attendees with answers to common questions such as: What is affordable housing? How is it created in Arlington? What is the “missing middle” and how does it impact me and my community? What is an accessory dwelling? How can seniors afford to live here as they age? Attendees also learned how they could participate and help spread the word about the campaign.
We were proud to partner with Leadership Center for Excellence and Volunteer Arlington for MLK Day for the day of Service to help strengthen and empower our community through hands-on service projects and on-site training opportunities.
Turnout for the event was fantastic, and we hope to provide additional opportunities like this in the future. If you are interested in attending future trainings, please sign up for our mailing list!
