Linden Resources was founded in 1959 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit to provide meaningful employment opportunities for people with disabilities.

About Linden Resources


In our first year, Linden Resources employed 26 individuals with disabilities. Since that time, Linden Resources has grown to employ, provide job placement and other innovative services and programs to serve each year nearly 450 individuals with barriers to being employed.

In order to fulfill our mission, Linden Resources operates 16 federal contracts and provides contact centers, print/assembly/mail, fulfillment, and secure document destruction for government and commercial clients.

Linden Resources is accredited by The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF International) at the highest level of a three year term, is an approved Ability One vendor and is a licensed provider of services through the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services, DC Rehabilitation Services Administration, and Maryland Division of Rehabilitation Services.  We partner with Northern Virginia Community Service Boards, the Virginia Department of Health and Human Services, other non-profit organizations and agencies to achieve our mission and advance our strategic goals to expand employment opportunities for people with disabilities.

What’s in a Name?

Linden Trees have heart-shaped leaves that, for us, symbolize our heart-felt passion for helping people with disabilities to reach their full work potential. At times those heart-shaped leaves grow upside down, yet the tree is strong, healthy and vibrant. Like our employees with disabilities, sometimes they may do the job just a little differently, but they always get the job done.

At Linden Resources, we work to make sure the environment is supportive and nurturing for people with disabilities to reach their potential.  Our name and the Linden tree exemplify our commitment.  The Linden tree specifically represents transformation and hidden inner strength.  Like the people we serve who may require extra support, encouragement or unique accommodations to perform their jobs, when a Linden tree is first planted, it often requires extra nurturing until the tree is rooted and able to thrive.  Linden trees are strong and grow well in rich soil.

Linden Resources is an Arlington-based nonprofit organization committed to providing meaningful employment and development opportunities to individuals with disabilities and wounded veterans. Through multiple grants, established community partnerships, and trusted business services, Linden supports employment for hundreds of people in the metro-DC area. Like the Linden tree, we take extreme care to support and enrich those we serve. With dedication, collaborative efforts, and commitment, Linden has created an environment where no one is without the opportunity to thrive and grow.
