For Community Partners

EMS of Virginia’s Homeless Prevention Program was designed to assist adults into a more permanent and stable lifestyle. While in our program, adults will have the opportunity to have a safe and stable house to stay in, while working with counselors on building their life to once again become independent. EMS provides support for participants to be able to afford stable housing. Our team will work with clients to help them find stable employment, housing, and will help to prepare them to live independently by also working on things such as grocery shopping, budgeting, and medication management. EMS services are designed to provide education and developmental and psychological support to enable homeless adults to become self-sufficient.

There are two major components of this program that successfully empowers and transitions homeless families into permanent housing. The EMS Homeless Prevention Program is an off-campus program that supports homeless adults, and in some cases their children. This is achieved through the direct delivery of individualized educational, developmental and emotional services through residential and off campus services. Adults are connected with the Housing and
Community Services Coordinator for at least 3 months and work with counselors who provide direct support.
