Hilda M. Barg Homeless Prevention Center
In partnership with the Prince William County Department of Social Services, Volunteers of America Chesapeake's Hilda M. Barg Homeless Prevention Center, is a 30-bed, short-term shelter helping homeless families and single adults develop individual plans that promote self-sufficient living. Shelter residents, homeless individuals and other community members in need have been taking advantage of the Volunteers of America Chesapeake’s on-site programs since 1990. These programs provide intensive case management including: mental health evaluation and counseling; drug and alcohol abuse prevention services; children's services; budget training; adult education and employment services. Hilda M. Barg Homeless Prevention Center also offers an after care and community outreach services where former residents can give back to the center and community.
After Care services are provided from 5-6 p.m. on Thursdays. Former residents participate in discussions with current residents on topics such as leasing information, landlord-tenant resolutions, roommate issues and more. After the group discussion, the former residents have the opportunity to speak with a case manager privately about concerns they may have regarding their current situation to ensure their continued success.
The community outreach service operates on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Residents of Prince William County, VA who are in need may come and receive excess donations that are available as well as access to county resources and referrals.
