If you are 3 days or less away from losing housing or are already experiencing homelessness, call the Shelter Diversion Line:
Housing Crisis Line: 804-972-0813
This phone line facilitates access to resources and shelter alternatives.
CARITAS receives all shelter placement referrals through the coordinated entry. CARITAS emergency shelters are committed to providing a place of shelter and support for every individual who passes through our doors. We accomplish this through a network of partner congregations.
CARITAS emergency shelter programs provide case management that focuses on developing a Housing Stabilization plan. This individualized plan identifies barriers to housing, establishes housing goals and identifies the steps that are necessary for individuals and families to exit shelter and return to self-sufficiency.
