In the mostly low-income neighborhood of Arlandria, instability is a fact of life. Rates of unemployment, homelessness, and domestic violence are the highest in the city; only 21% of families are fluent in English; 44% are headed by single parents. Housing is fundamental: 45 units of transitional and affordable housing give homeless and low-income families a stable place to live. But with a stunning 70% of families out of work during the pandemic, supplying food and hygiene supplies has become central. Community outreach helps families with everything from completing applications for SNAP to gaining access to testing. Education programs are conducted remotely (phone, FaceTime, Zoom – whatever works) and the new focus is job readiness programs to help residents return to work. Offering so much more than a place to live, Community Lodgings means critical support in a time of great need.
