Housing Services

Everyone deserves to have a roof over their heads.  ACTS is here to help those who don't.

 

Beverly Warren Emergency Shelter:

Whether you need a safe place to stay for the night or even a few weeks, ACTS Beverly Warren Family Shelter is open.  We have up to 18 beds available if you are a single female or family with children.  Calls us at 703-221-3188 anytime day or night if you are:

  • Homeless
  • Facing eviction
  • Living in a car
  • Living on the street
  • Living in other housing which has been deemed unsuitable for human habitation
We will help you fill out an intake form, conduct a background check, and bring you in, if we have a bed available. If we are full, we can often still help place you somewhere else using the same intake application.

While you are staying with us, our Case Managers can provide:

  • Housing Location Services
  • Employment Services
  • Life Skills classes
  • Referral Services

If you have children, we will ensure they stay in school and have plenty to do while they are here.  We strive to make this as comfortable as possible for them by providing activities, play equipment, and even birthday parties.  if you are already employed, you will be able to keep your job.  If not, we will do our best to help you find one.

Permanent Supportive Housing:  (COMING SOON)

Our Transitional Housing is available for people who are facing one or more of the following:

ACTS Women's Empowerment Center is a newly-renovated 6,000 square foot house, which has been remodeled to allow for five units of Permanent Supportive Housing for individuals and families, as well as offices and group activity rooms in the basement. The house sits on a full acre of wooded land with a brand new children's play set.

Once opened, the new program is designed to provide long-term housing and case management services to chronically homeless households struggling with substance use or mental health disorders.

Rapid Re-Housing Program:

Are you literally homeless, living in a car, on the street, or other housing which has been deemed unsuitable for human habitation?

While with us we will help you with:

If we are unable to provide you with assistance, please contact the Prince William Area Continuum of Care's Coordinated Entry System by calling 703-792-3366. The goal of the system is to provide fair and equal access to safe housing and services to the homeless, as well as to those who are in danger of becoming homeless.
