CARITAS is an organization united by our compassion to help our most vulnerable neighbors break the cycles of homeless and addiction and reclaim their dignity. Over the 30 years we have been around, we have expanded from being the largest provider of emergency shelter, to have a family of programs that help a person move from crisis to stability. We have the emergency shelter, a furniture bank which partners with 100 different agencies across Richmond, a long term recovery program for men and a work force development program. In 2019 we will expand our programs by opening a recovery facility for women, The Healing Place for Women.
