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 man 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

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.
