Mission Statement

"To provide emergency funds for village residents in crisis, on a short-term basis."


Arlington Cares, NFP is a recognized 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization created to help raise money for
the Village of Arlington Heights Emergency Assistance Fund. The Emergency Assistance
Fund which is administered by the Human Services Coordinator of the Village of Arlington
Heights offers programs and services to residents. Most services are a one-time
stop-gap measure that is intended to help the family become more stable and able
to live independently. The majority of clients live paycheck to paycheck, having
low incomes or fixed incomes, such as those living on Social Security retirement or
disability benefits. All donations go toward helping these families work through their time of crisis.
