I found your website, but how do I get into a shelter?

The first thing that you should do is call Coordinated Services Planning (703-222-0880), which acts as the “resource hub” for Fairfax County in order to obtain information about local emergency shelters.

Once I’m in a shelter, how would I get referred to Safe Places?

Speak to your shelter case manager regarding program vacancies. If they are unfamiliar with our referral process, they may email safeplaces@christianrelief.org for questions about the referral process.

What are the program requirements?

You must be homeless as a result of domestic violence; work at least 30 hours per week; have custody of at least one minor child; be open to weekly case management sessions and willing to attend individual and/or group therapy sessions.
