Adopt a Home: Holiday Edition - Arlington County

CRi (Choice. Respect. independence.)

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 1 person is interested

Since March 2020, CRi’s 42 residences have been on lockdown to ensure the safety and health of both residents and the staff supporting them. No longer are residents able to take a trip to the grocery store, see their friends at the day programs, or spend the weekend with family. Staff have worked tirelessly to help residents transition into a new normal while finding new and innovative ways to help them grow and develop while staying at home.

Volunteers are needed to help spice up the daily COVID routine of both residents and staff by decorating the exterior of a CRi home for the holiday of the month: Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Winter Solstice. Decorations can be homemade or purchased, more the better; we just ask that they are able to withstand the weather for the duration of the holiday month and are not specific to any religious celebration to respect the individual believes of the residents. While third parties are not allowed inside the homes, decorations can be made and given to staff to hang indoors at a later date.

CRi has homes in Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, and Prince William Counties.

For more information and to express interest, please email Janet Davison at jdavison@mycri.org.
