Hanover, Richmond, Henrico, Chesterfield, and Petersburg County Virginia housing and homeless shelter programs.

Transitional housing programs in central Virginia can assist members of the counties and cities of Richmond, Henrico, Petersburg, and Chesterfield. Qualified low income and working poor families can find a place to stay, hot meal, clothing, case management, free homeless shelters and also help in regaining self-sufficiency. The goal of any non-profit agency or government programs is to help people overcome their hardship and find a new, permanent home to live in.

To that end, transitional housing will often normally include information or help in applying for educational services or employment. Having a stable, decent paying job is the most important factor to ending homelessness in the greater Petersburg and Henrico County Virginia region. So social workers partner with clients to make that happen, help them acquire new skills, and improve their financial condition.

If you are on the verge of eviction or if you are currently homeless, call one or more of the non-profits below for help. Explore any type of emergency homeless shelters, government aid, or transitional housing programs that may be available for you or your family.
