New River Family Shelter (NRFS) is the only scattered shelter program in the New River Valley that provides safe emergency housing to families and children. Our mission is to end homelessness in our community.
“If it was not for the roof they provided for my family, we would have been sleeping in the streets. Carol and NRFS helped us with so many things throughout our stay. I am grateful that there are places that actually care about people. My family had a warm bed to sleep in, and I didn’t have to worry as much as I did before we were placed in the shelter. I want to thank everyone for all of their help.”
