Drop-In Services

The Drop-In Services program provides food, laundry facilities, showers, and case management to the homeless population. Drop-In Services addresses the needs of community residents having a safe and dignified place for individuals experiencing homelessness to go during the day to take care of everyday needs and access short-term services and supports.
Emergency Homeless Shelters

Emergency shelter means any facility, the primary purpose of which is to provide a temporary shelter for the homeless in general or for specific populations of the homeless and which does not require occupants to sign leases or occupancy agreements.

Loudoun County has three emergency shelters to assist community members that may be in need of emergency shelter. Each shelter is open to residents of Loudoun County and offers various programs to assist households in stabilizing housing.

Permanent Supportive Housing

Permanent Supportive Housing is permanent housing with indefinite leasing or rental assistance paired with supportive services. The program assists persons (or families) who have an adult or child with a documented disability, and individuals with a history of chronic homelessness. The PSH program differs from other supportive housing programs due to the federally mandated eligibility criteria.
Rapid Re-Housing

Rapid re-housing is an intervention, informed by a "Housing First" approach that is a critical part of a communitys effective Coordinated Entry System. Rapid re-housing rapidly connects families and individuals experiencing homelessness to permanent housing through a tailored package of assistance that may include the use of time-limited financial assistance and targeted supportive services.
Targeted Prevention & Diversion Services

Targeted Prevention and Diversion Services are designed to assist Loudoun County residents who are facing rental eviction or in jeopardy of losing their housing. The support provided is meant to prevent the incidence of homelessness, including, but not limited to: short-term subsidies to defray rent and utility arrears for households that have received eviction or utility termination notices (prevention); security deposits or first months rent to permit a homeless family to move into its own apartment (diversion); and other supportive services intended to prevent households from becoming homeless.
Transitional Housing

Transitional Housing Programs provide members of the community with decent, safe and sanitary housing while paying a portion of their household income towards rent. The goal of the program is to facilitate movement to independent living and self-sufficiency through individualized supportive services. These services are aimed at self-empowerment, improved employment potential, increased opportunities for economic betterment, strengthened skills in the area of financial planning and family budgeting in addition to attempts to increase educational levels and instill effective home management.
