Salvation Army Emergency Shelter
207 Ridge Street
Charlottesville, VA - 22902
The Emergency Shelter is a 58 bed shelter available for overnight stay or for stays of several weeks or months at a time. There is no charge for the service. Residents are given linens, three free meals a day, and casework when needed. We assist the residents in finding employment, saving their money, and locating suitable housing. The Center of Hope Transitional Housing Program opened in 1994, there are nine one- and two-bedroom apartments in a two-story building located at 207 Ridge Street. Guests share a furnished apartment, food service through our world-famous soup kitchen, and set life-changing goals. A waiting list is maintained as this program fills quickly. This program is based on prior success as a resident of the shelter and a holistic approach working with the Corps Officers and corps staff.
