Homeless Services

​The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources provides homeless services to West Virginia citizens when such services are appropriate and available under the circumstances. These services include:

  • ​assessing an applicant's claim for homeless services
  • providing emergency food, shelter and medical care to a homeless individual
  • developing an individual service plan defining goals and services that help the homeless individual
  • working with state and community organizations in developing and providing services that are reasonable and cost effective.
