HOMELESS SHELTER PROGRAM (703) 221-3186

Aletha Martin, Homeless Shelter Director

We provide a 2 week temporary shelter for men, women and children with 15 beds available at any one time.  For extenuating circumstances, extensions will be granted while we assist you to find permanent housing.  This is free room and board for homeless individuals and we are open 24 hours a day.

  • Temporary Emergency Shelter for people who are homeless
  • 15 beds available
  • Free Room and board
  • Open 24 hours a day

Through the Shelter Program we also offer Case Management assistance.  Through the Case Manager, you will find assistance to become self-sufficient, find permanent housing, limited employment assistance, how to apply for SSI and Food Stamp Benefits.  To summarize this program, we offer:

  • Assistance to become Self-Sufficient
  • Assistance to transfer to Permanent Housing
  • Limited Employment Assistance
  • Assistance in applying & receiving SSI Benefits
  • Assistance in applying & receiving Food Stamp Benefits

As part of this program to get the community involved, we have developed the ADOPT-A-ROOM Program.  This Program gives the community, one or two families/individuals or even companies, the chance to decorate a room at the shelter.  Our goal with this program is to make each room warm, friendly and inviting so that when someone has to stay here, they feel a sense of hope.  After all, isn't that what life is about?  Hope with dignity!
