Safe, affordable and accessible housing is a priority for St. Mary’s.

How You Can Get Involved

A portion of your stewardship pledges goes in support to each of these non-profits. Your donation does a lot. Visit our outreach partner’s Websites to learn more about how you can volunteer with these organizations.

Rebuilding Together – St. Mary’s largest outreach event is an annual event where the local Rebuilding Together non-profit identifies a local homeowner in need of critical housing repairs, accessibility modifications, energy upgrades, and landscape improvements.

  • Save the date for the last Saturday in April, when our St. Mary’s parishioners led by our St. Joseph’s Ministry jump in for one day only–rain or shine–to re-build, re-pair and re-beautify the chosen home. A link to volunteer on the Sign-Up Portal will be posted at the beginning of April.

Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing (APAH) – Founded in 1989, APAH is a nonprofit developer dedicated to developing, preserving and owning quality affordable housing in Arlington; this is a goal St. Mary’s has supported for years through volunteering, advocacy, and financial aid.

  • Watch in late July for St. Mary’s call for backpacks and school supply drive to benefit the families connected with APAH.

Culpepper Garden – A nonprofit retirement housing community, Culpeper Garden provides low and moderate-income seniors ages 62 and older with an affordable housing option.

Doorways for Women and Families – This organization provides women and families a nurturing, confidential and secure home where they can escape domestic violence and homelessness and receive holistic services that provide the best chance for long-term success.
