Emergency Financial
Assistance

Unexpected things happen. A hospital visit, a leaky roof, sudden job loss, death of breadwinner. These are just some of the emergencies that can push a person teetering on the edge of homeless completely over the edge. Call (540) 981-1732

RAM House
Day Shelter

Since 1987, the RAM House Day Shelter has provided refuge from the elements and a place of comfort, acceptance and support for those most in need. We recognize the need for support during some of life's most trying times.  Call (540) 343-3753

Hot Noontime
Meal

One in five children go hungry part of every month. Hunger can affect health, quality of life, and leave a person unable to face daily challenges. We serve a nutritious lunch, every day, to anyone who has need.
