Description: Emergency overnight shelter that moves around between 80 host churches & organizations during the cold season 
Intake 5:30-5:45pm nightly during shelter season at The Haven.PACEM’s shelters open in late October and remain open through the end of March. Our shelter season spans the time of year when the risk of freezing to death is real for those sleeping on the streets. Our shelters host as many as 45 men and 20 women each night.
Our Role as a Community Safety NetPACEM’s shelters are “Last Resort,” a place to go when a person is seeking shelter and has no other options. As a result, we are sometimes required to help individuals recognize that they have other choices. Below are some of the reasons why a guest may be referred elsewhere, encouraged to move forward, or assigned a limited length of stay:
they are eligible to stay at the Salvation Army and there are open beds;they have family or friends they can stay with and we know of no reason that this is not a safe alternative;they have voluntarily left another shelter within the last 30 days;they have support resources such as a social worker in another community.Coming to PACEMEach night between 5:30 and 5:45 p.m., individuals in need of shelter sign in at Intake at The Haven (112 West Market Street) in downtown Charlottesville.
