Established in 2002, Arlington Cares is a not-for-profit 503(c)3 organization created to assist Arlington Heights residents who are in need of temporary financial support. Recognized in 2018 by the Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce as Not-For-Profit of the Year, we are deeply dedicated to serving the needs of the community. We host fun and exciting social events year round aimed at engaging the community, while also raising funds to supplement the Village of Arlington Heights Emergency Assistance Program. Through our annual donation, the Emergency Assistance Program is able to help residents who are struggling to meet their basic needs. Last year alone, our Village assisted 570 residents. One misfortune is often all it takes for a family to fall into a desperate situation. Arlington Cares strengthens our neighbors’ ability to manage financial hardships and create real change in their lives. We are neighbors helping neighbors.
