Homeless Shelter Directory

Who We Are

The Virginia Homeless Shelter Directory offers a list of homeless shelters and services for the needy.  Many are emergency shelters; some are transitional housing locations; some may have waiting lists. It is suggested that you call to inquire about a waiting list before going to them.  Referrals are only accepted through a Housing Crisis Hotline.

Other services may be offered at a shelter: transitional resources; medical and dental clinics; drug treatment rehab, case management and more.
