The Loudoun Emergency Homeless Shelter (LEHS) is operated by Volunteers of America and is located in Leesburg. The LEHS offers emergency shelter to families, single women and single men. This is a 44-bed shelter with an 89-day program offering intensive case management, life-skills classes and children's services, as well as providing basic necessities like food and shelter.
St. James' parishioners provide dinner the first Thursday and the third Tuesday of each month. Parishioners deliver and serve the prepared food to the families who reside at the shelter and engage in conversation and fellowship with them. In addition, parishioners occasionally provide toiletries and other necessities.
