Street Outreach Program

We started to hit the streets in November 2018 to lend peer support, ensure community resource connection, and to bring essential items to homeless families and individuals. We will be located in various locations where homeless individuals congregate in Harrisonburg, Rockingham, Shenandoah and Page.

The community has already been so generous with in-kind donations, that we have a majority of what we need for the backpacks that we will be supplying our participants with. However, we still need help obtaining the following items:

  • Flashlights
  • Thermal Blankets
  • Gloves
  • Socks
  • Ponchos
  • Restaurant Gift Certificates
  • Granola Bars, Packs of Crackers, Fruit Snacks
  • Monetary Donations, so we can purchase bus tickets to place in people’s backpacks, and for coffee and donuts for our outreach events

We Are Here To Serve Those In Need

If you are homeless and struggling – on the streets, living in a place that isn’t secure, couch hopping, or staying with someone, but you aren’t on the lease – we encourage you to visit us at our Street Outreach events, or come see us at our Harrisonburg office Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays between 9:00am – 2:00pm.

Meet our peer support team and get some coffee and donuts! Non-judgmental and respectful – we are here to serve you.
