S.E.R.V.E. shelter
Welcome to S.E.R.V.E. Securing Emergency Resources through Volunteer Efforts!

S.E.R.V.E. is a transitional shelter located in Manassas for 30-day emergency stays. They offer space for both individuals and families. Their vision is that no person in our community will have to be homeless, no child will have to go to bed hungry, and no family will lose their dignity or let their dreams die because of poverty.

S.E.R.V.E. is now part of Northern Virginia Family Services.    S.E.R.V.E. addresses the immediate needs of families and individuals in crisis and offers them the stabilizing support they need to become self sufficient and build a better future. NVFS offers a complete continuum of housing assistance programs to help people move from homelessness to homeownership.

Are you passionate about the needs of the homeless? S.E.R.V.E. is looking for volunteers and in-kind donations.
