About Us

Arlington Public Schools (APS) and Arlington County Government (ACG) support a joint Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to provide free, confidential, professional assistance to employees and their families to help resolve personal, family, or work-related concerns that may impact emotional, physical, or spiritual well-being and potentially affect, the employees’ job performance.  Staff assist with onsite crisis/grief responses, offer supervisor/management consultation, and conduct employee and supervisory training.

The EAP is committed to helping both APS and ACG attract and retain high quality professionals.  We recognize that retention is impacted by work climate and available supportive services to help manage life events.
