Arlington Shelter and Residential Program
Volunteers of America Chesapeake
Who We Are
The Residential Program Center (RPC) provides three crucial services – non-medical detoxification, substance abuse recovery and housing services for single adults experiencing homelessness – all under one roof. This program includes a 12-bed detoxification unit; a 10-bed Early Recovery Unit; and a 44-bed homeless shelter that provides housing-focused case management, job training, referral services and more.
Housed within Arlington County's Department of Human Services, our Diversion and Prevention Services offers linkage to emergency food, financial assistance, housing placement programs, other supportive services to prevent entrance into homelessness, and shelter as a last resort option. Volunteers of America Chesapeake (VOAC) offers case management services to all clients and assists with developing an individualized plan to address financial stability, increasing employment, assessing for housing type, and assists with how clients can remain permanently housed.
