Arlington Launches Homeless Housing Fundraising

Published April 6, 2012

The homeless are not difficult to find in Arlington County if you know where to look.

Some hang out by certain Metro exits, while others prefer to slip into the vest-pocket parks where few notice them. One man, sleeping by a dumpster behind a funeral home, died last month during the temperate spring weather that didn’t seem dangerous to those with a roof and a bed. In 2011, at least three other homeless people died.
