Loudoun County is operating an overnight drop-in center for people to take care of their basic daily needs, including meals, access to shower and laundry facilities, and other resources.
The drop-in services will be provided temporarily at the Sterling Community Center, 120 Enterprise Street, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 9:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m.
The county will provide free transportation from the Douglass Community Center, 405 East Market Street in Leesburg, to the drop-in center with a shuttle bus departing nightly at 9:00 p.m.
The drop-in center is open to adults, 18 years of age or older. A photo ID is required. People in need of assistance should call 703-777-0420.
Drop-in services will return to their permanent location at the Loudoun Homeless Services Center in Leesburg when renovations to that building are complete in May 2019.
Loudoun County oversees the operation of the drop-in center in partnership with the Loudoun County Continuum of Care (CoC). The CoC is a coalition of public, nonprofit and faith-based organizations that provide a variety of shelter and support services to persons who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Staff support for the CoC is provided by the Loudoun County Department of Family Services. Volunteers of America operates the facility under contract with the county.
Members of the community who are interested in supporting the county’s efforts to serve people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness may call 571-258-3033.
