Homeless Outreach Program

The Homeless Outreach Program is a lifeline for our neighbors struggling with homelessness. Volunteers of America is committed to extending a hand up to those in need through homeless prevention, rapid rehousing and emergency shelter in the Sheridan community. Whether it's the single mother who fell short on rent while she was starting a new job, or the family that has to choose between paying rent and taking their child to the hospital, WE ARE HERE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Seven days a week VOA provides individualized service coordination to find collaborative solutions that combat homelessness in the Sheridan community.

Service coordinators available seven days a week from 10:00 am - 9:00 pm. Give us a call at 307.751.5708.

In the first three months of the Homeless Outreach Program, 151 of our neighbors avoided spending the night out in the cold because VOA was there. Twenty-nine households, that were imminently homeless, avoided losing their homes ... many of those, homes with children, who were able to stay enrolled in school despite their family’s hardship. Thirty-four households received emergency shelter, to avoid another night out in winter's chill. For each of those 151 people, the Homeless Outreach Program made all the difference in their world. Without your continued support none of this would be possible. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of so many neighbors, relatives and friends.
