Bridges to Independence is an Arlington-based nonprofit which is highly effective at empowering homeless people and families to become self-sufficient and independent on a permanent basis. Roughly 70% of their clients are employed, but not earning enough for the DC area's high cost of housing. They help people to upgrade their skills, to find the better jobs and to make a stable life for themselves and family.
