EMS of Virginia recognizes and responds to the housing crisis in Central Virginia by offering mental health and skill building services to those in need.
For anyone who has experienced homelessness, or being unhoused, EMS of Virginia focuses on assisting you to have a more permanent and stable lifestyle, despite ongoing mental health challenges. While in one of our programs, you will work with counselors on building your life to become more independent. Our team will work with you to help you find stable employment, affordable housing, and will help to prepare you to live independently by also working on things such as grocery shopping, accessing transportation, budgeting, and medication management.
If you are interested in Mental Health Skill-building, Community Stabilization Services, Mobile Crisis Response, or Intensive In-home Counseling, please fill out our referral form. These services are all Medicaid funded. If you have access to CSA (FAPT) funding, we might also be able to help you toward goals related to lifestyle stability through Parent Coaching or Mentoring.
