Our community is suffering.

Every day, people are dying needlessly in the D.C. metro area. It’s tragic morally and spiritually—and financially. We’re losing the untapped talents and spirit of those trapped in addiction, hopelessness and mental illness.


It doesn’t have to be that way.

Give and have an impact we all can see.

Proven Tools

More than 95% of participants continue in active recovery a year after completing their initial program. In contrast, most other recovery programs have a 50 percent or lower success rate.

Visible Transformation

Participants go from mental health crises and court appearances to stable housing, family reintegration and contributing to their community.

Magnified Reach

Our participants rejoin their communities, and draw others to Arm & Arm and the recovery we promise. One donation helps the entire community.

Work with a proven community partner.

Arm & Arm provides peer-to-peer mentoring and trauma recovery services to communities across Northern Virginia. We’ve built a supportive network of compassionate and collaborative individuals, and together we comprise the Arm & Arm community. We’re on a mission to empower individuals to overcome the trauma of addiction, incarceration, violence, or homelessness, and gain the skills they need to live healthy and independent lives.
