What We Do

Faithworks is currently involved in several projects that help meet critical needs in the communities we serve. 

Tenant Based Rental Assistance program provides financial assistance to homeless individuals and families seeking to secure

safe, affordable permanent housing.    

Emergency Food and Shelter program provides limited financial assistance for rent and/or mortgage payments as funds are available.

Potter's House Transitional Shelter provides temporary housing for women or women with children who are fleeing a domestic violence situation.

Pay It Forward Program provides emergency financial assistance to individuals and families throughout the Northern Shenandoah Valley who are experiencing a temporary financial crisis. Funding is provided through a United Way Community Impact Grant.

Homeless Outreach and Partnership Engagement program (H.O.P.E.) is a new service funded through Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development to connect unsheltered individuals and families with local agencies that provide needed services.

Winchester "CODE BLUE" Emergency Assistance is a partnership with United Ways' Valley Assistance Network and Blue Ridge Housing Network to address the immediate need for a warm place to stay when the snow is falling and/or the forecast is for sub-freezing temperatures. Faithworks works with VAN and BRHN to connect those on the streets with available shelter beds and, as needed, a motel room during the dangerously cold weather period.

In April 2016, Faithworks was awarded a Capacity Building Grant from Virginia Housing Development Authority to increase the capacity to provide housing and related services throughout the Northern Shenandoah Valley.

In November 2018, Faithworks was certified by the Northern Shenandoah Valley Regional Commission as a Community Development Housing Organization and is currently working with community partners including churches, non-profit agencies, real estate agents, property owners, businesses, etc. to address and plan ways to alleviate the affordable housing crisis and resulting increase in homelessness throughout the valley.
