Welcome to Shenandoah Alliance for Shelter

Shenandoah Alliance for Shelter was created as a result of several meetings in 1989 attended by about 25 to 30 representatives of the community including concerned citizens, ministers, DSS caseworkers, Salvation Army, Sheriff's Department, church outreach groups, Habitat for Humanity, and Blue Ridge Legal Services. The concern was that there was no mechanism in this County to assist homeless families while keeping the family together as a unit.

Our mission at Shenandoah Alliance for Shelter is to prevent homelessness by providing temporary shelter and supportive services designed to enable clients to achieve independence.
