The Center of Hope is a 88 bed facility that serves those needing shelter in the Greater Lynchburg area.
The Center has a mens floor, women and childrens floor and family units designed to keep families together.
The Center was built in 2008 and is maintained through donations from the community.  Residents of the shelter participate in life skills programs that enable them to reestablish themselves and provide needed assistance as they assimilate back into affordable housing.
During frigid temperatures in the winter and sweltering heat in the summer, the shelter opens its doors and becomes warming and heating stations.  Sleeping cots are set up in the winter when temperatures drop below 40 degrees to those in need to ensure that no one is in danger of freezing.  When temperatures rise above 90 degrees, the shelter becomes a cooling station to prevent heat related illnesses among transient populations.
Family services for the community at large are also a part of our Center of Hope.  Last year, more than 6,000 individuals were served in the community who needed emergency assistance with rent and utilities.  Along with financial funds, family services also supplied food, hygiene products, clothing (including winter coats) and other necessities to families in need living in the Lynchburg community.
The Center of Hope serves citizens of Lynchburg, Amherst, Appomattox, Bedford, Campbell and Nelson counties.
