Everyone deserves shelter


Our Mission

​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.

2020-2021 Season Update

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 office@valleyopendoors.org. If no one can be reached at the office and you are in need of shelter, please call Centralized Housing Intake at 540-271-1701.
