The Faith Community Coalition for the Homeless seeks to fill the gaps in services for homeless persons in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia, through volunteers and donated funds without duplicating services. FCCH provides safe emergency shelter when no other options are feasible; connect homeless and at-risk persons to housing and community services and we seek collaborative solutions and improvement to services and housing opportunities.

We are "Closing the Gap" in shelter and housing needs for individuals and families in the Eastern Panhandle. The purpose of the program is to:

- Provide one to three nights of emergency shelter when no other option is available. FCCH volunteers answer our 24-hour call line, conduct intake, assess needs, authorize a short stay in a motel and provide a bag of food from CCAP. They make sure the client has an exit plan and make referrals to other resources as needed.

-Provide modest financial help to prevent eviction or secure affordable rental housing. Intake and service are done through Catholic Charities social work staff.

The Unity Campaign is a 12-day fundraiser powered by United Way of the Eastern Panhandle. During the 12 Days of Giving from April 1 - 12, donors can contribute to any of the participating agencies and 100% of their contribution will go directly to the nonprofit organization of their choice.
