NVRC compiles and annually updates the Suburban Virginia Homeless Shelter List
, describing the shelters that exist throughout the region and the requirements for participation in their programs. An interim update was published in April, 2015.
NVRC also compiles a list of the daytime drop-in centers in the region with their services and contact information. These centers, which usually allow anyone to walk in, will often be the first contact that a homeless person has with the services that can help him or her. See the Suburban Virginia Homeless Drop-in Center List
During the winter months when low temperatures pose a greater risk for homeless people living outdoors, additional sheltering resources are available. NVRC publishes this information in the Suburban Virginia Winter Shelter List
