HomeAgain’s mission is to assist homeless families and individuals in metro Richmond by providing emergency and transitional shelter as well as programs designed to build skills leading to increased self-sufficiency and to identify resources needed to obtain and maintain permanent housing.

In 2014, HomeAgain served 444 individuals (313adults and 131 children).  Of the adults, 27% were veterans. 71% of those who left a HomeAgain program went immediately to safe, affordable permanent housing
