Richmond homelessness organizations

It’s been a real while since posting, and I almost decided to stop. But… I think I may continue but focus a bit more, but then again, we’ll see how that goes.

I more or less just wanted to put out a list of area organizations dedicated to the homelessness:

  1. Homeward – planning & coordinating organization for homeless services
  2. Freedom House – community shelter, transitional housing and “intake”
  3. Daily Planet -job training and health care center
  4. Embrace Richmond – working to prevent homelessness by mobilizing people of faith through various programs such as UnityWorks
  5. The Healing Place – homeless shelter and long-term recovery program
  6. Home Again – nightly shelter and support services
  7. CARITAS – area churches providing winter emergency shelter
  8. Flagler Services – support specifically for homeless women and their families
  9. Daughters of Zelophehad – transitional housing for women and their children
  10. Hilliard House – assisting homeless women and their children
  11. Safe Harbor – shelter and counseling for those experiencing domestic violence
  12. CARITAS Community Sharehouse – transitional housing support (including furniture, employment and encouragement)
  13. Virginia Supportive Housing – permanent housing and support services
  14. Gateway Homes – transitional, residential treatment program for adults with mental illness
  15. OAR – offender aid and restoration
