WARM’s Community Outreach efforts coordinate with regional homeless prevention, rapid rehousing, and diversion services by our organization and partners. Community Outreach also includes referrals and support services to persons and families who are experiencing homelessness, formerly homeless or participating in the Aftercare Program of Ruth’s Warm House.
Although outreach efforts are extremely important to WARM’s work, this program is in capacity building stages and does not currently have designated staffing. However, we work closely with partner agencies who have staff and funding that are the foundation of our collaborative work. Due to these limitations, all requests cannot be met, and we are required to follow eligibility and guidelines from our funding sources. In these cases, WARM still makes every effort to support and help each potential client navigate resources, address their need, and explore the factors that contributed to the circumstance (if any).
Contact the WARM office at 540.324.8166 Monday-Friday between the hours of 10a-4pm to learn more, request assistance or receive support services through our Community Outreach program. You may also call the Valley Homeless Connection hotline, managed by Valley Community Services Board, at 540.213.7347. WARM is one of the lead agencies with VHC and your information will undergo the same process regardless of your method of contact.
