Homeless Shelter and Housing Programs
ARCH provides the initial stabilization needed for clients to exit the cycle of homelessness. We utilize a low-barrier, housing first model of shelter to ensure that homelessness is rare and brief. Clients are provided therapeutic case management and referrals to additional appropriate resources.
Heroes Refuge: This 15-bed shelter dedicated to homeless veterans is located in the Trust House facility. ARCH contracts with the Salem VA Medical Center for these beds, which serves veterans in 26 counties in Southwestern Virginia.
Safe Refuge: This 12-bed shelter dedicated to individuals, women, and families is located in the Trust House facility. ARCH receives referrals from City of Roanoke's Homeless Assistance Team and Blue Ridge Behavioral Healthcare for these beds.
New Beginnings: This housing stability program provides the supportive services that are set in place for clients once they enter into housing to ensure that they remain housed. This includes therapeutic case management provided in clients' homes and additional supportive services.
Heroes Haven and Healing Heaven: This permanent supportive housing program is designated for chronically homeless individuals and families and chronically homeless veterans and is located in scattered sites through out the community. This program provides housing subsidies while surrounding clients with the supportive services of New Beginnings.
Substance Abuse Treatment Program
Bethany Hall: This residential substance abuse treatment program provides a second chance for women, pregnant/postpartum women, and child welfare involved women in recovery from drugs and alcohol. We offer a holistic approach to recovery while providing a supportive and healing treatment environment. In operation for the last 45 years, this program is pivotal in the success of women's recovery as well as the health of their unborn babies.
