Is ANV duplicating services already available in the county?

Residents of Arlington are fortunate that there is a wide variety of services and programs available, whether provided by the county government or the many non-profit organizations. ANV will connect its members to many of these services – part of the “one stop shop” approach where a member can call ANV if they are looking for a service or activity but don’t know where to turn. ANV works closely with several county agencies to avoid duplication where possible and to develop complementary services. For example, we coordinate with the Department of Parks and Recreation’s Office of Senior Adult Programs to promote member awareness and utilization of their 55+ activities and programs. ANV services complement this program by helping neighbors link up to attend events together and providing transportation if needed.
