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.

2021 Season Update

On Monday, July 12, Open Doors began the 2021 Summer 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. No on site late arrivals, all guests must check in between 7:30-8pm.

We will have 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 7:30pm-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.
