Carpenter’s Shelter partners with the city of Alexandria and the greater Metropolitan Washington, D.C. area to eliminate homelessness through respect, responsibility and results. Through its many programs, they advocate self-reliance through education and provide programs and services as needed.
Carpenter’s Shelter is Northern Virginia’s largest homeless shelter, serving over 1,000 homeless and formerly homeless men, women and children each year. More than just a roof, Carpenter’s serves breakfast, lunch and dinner 365 days a year. With a food budget of $0, we rely on the generosity of the community to fill our pantry.
