Spring for Housing – An Opportunity to Help PACEM Guests

PACEM 01WHAT HAPPENED?
Earlier this year, the City of Charlottesville awarded funding to Thomas Jefferson Area Coalition for the Homeless (TJACH) to house the homeless!

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?
In partnership with The Haven, PACEM and other homeless service providers, TJACH will use these city-funded rental subsidies to house an additional 31 of Charlottesville’s most vulnerable homeless individuals.

WHAT DO WE NEED?
We recognize that providing rapid, low-barrier housing lays the groundwork for the stability that the homeless so desperately need. However, a place to live is only the first step. We need the basic amenities that will help ensure that the newly-housed are successful.

HOW YOU CAN HELP?
Donate household goods or gently-used furniture to help make our clients feel more at home in their new place! We created a gift registry at Bed, Bath & Beyond to make purchasing and shipping easy. Service providers and volunteers will use these donations to create and distribute move-in kits. For details, visit The Haven’s GIVE THINGS page.
