This month, we are praying for, learning about, and supporting Loudoun Emergency Homeless Shelter (LEHS). Operated by Volunteers of America and located in Leesburg, LEHS operates a 24-hour/7-day a week 30-day emergency shelter program with 44 beds for single persons and families who are experiencing a housing crisis. VOA provides the following services directly or through partnerships: mental health assessment and treatment, clothing, group therapy, transportation, crisis intervention, housing, counseling, life skills classes, parenting classes financial literacy classes, and educational support. The average length of stay is 58.5 days. In 2016, LEHS served 157 households and 225 individuals; 128 households exited the shelter, with 71 (46%) transitioning into permanent housing destinations. Please keep LEHS in your prayers, and give generously on the last Sunday of the month to support this important ministry.
