To engage the community of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County in partnership to provide shelter, compassionate support and access to services for people who are homeless.
On Monday, October 5, Open Doors began the 2020-2021 shelter season. We are currently located at 677 Chicago Avenue, Harrisonburg (formerly Red Front Supermarket). Due to COVID-19, we have extra precautions this season. ALL guests must be screened daily by Healthcare for the Homeless Suitcase Clinic prior to shelter entry. Health screenings will begin at 6:30pm each evening at the shelter. No on site late arrivals.
We will have 45 beds at our shelter for adults 18+ on a first come, first served, basis. We are a shelter of last resort for anyone experiencing homelessness who may not qualify to stay at other shelters. We offer shelter daily from 6:30pm-7am.
For questions about shelter, please call 705-1908 or email
If no one can be reached at the office, please call Centralized Housing Intake at 540-271-1701.
