Help us support homeless families during this unprecedented time of need.
The loss of housing looms large for families, due to Covid-19 job losses. The number of families impacted by Covid-19 continues to grow. Our mission is to provide emergency short-term shelter and resources for families with children in Virginia’s New River Valley through our partnerships with other related nonprofits and mainstream institutions in the area. The New River Family Shelter is the only scattered shelter model in the New River Valley. Our scattered model means that families stay in shelters that are equipped for one or two families only, allowing them safety and privacy. While they are with us, New River Family Shelter, through our partnerships, connects families with needed services and access to resources that help them get back on their feet. With the generous support of people like you, we are able to help many families work toward quickly finding permanent housing
