Manassas Hope for the Homeless

Demonstrating the Warmth of Christ to the Homeless of Manassas During Extreme Cold

The Manassas Hope for the Homeless is comprised of Christians from over a dozen churches in the greater Manassas area who have come together to provide emergency shelter to the area’s homeless when we experience extreme cold weather.

The Shelter is closed for the season and will reopen in November 2024.

For other shelter information, please contact Streetlight Ministries at 703-277-7140.

Thank you to all those who have supported the shelter throughout this past winter season. We look forward to seeing you next season. God bless!

We need volunteers to provide hot dinners to the Hope for the Homeless Emergency Warming Shelter when it opens for the winter of 2018-2019.  We plan to do that in 2 ways:

  1. Bring a hot meal, (you, your church or organization can donate the meal OR you can prepare a meal from our pantry) and bring it over on days that we know the Emergency Warming Shelter will be open.  Dinner is usually at 6 pm, and breakfast is at 6 am.  
  2. Donate for the shelter pantry either monetarily or with gifts of pantry items
