ARCH provides the initial stabilization needed for clients to exit the cycle of homelessness. We provide therapeutic case management and referrals to additional appropriate resources in the community. We utilize a low barrier, housing first model of shelter to ensure that homelessness is rare, brief, and non-recurring.

Safe Refuge: This 12-bed shelter dedicated to homeless individuals and families is also 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.
