Emergency Food and Shelter Program

Helping local nonprofits provide
assistance in critical areas

The Emergency Food and Shelter Program (ESFP) helps fund non-profits and public agencies who are providing food services, shelter, rent/mortgage and utility assistance to their local residents. If you are a resident of Charles City County, Colonial Heights, Dinwiddie County, Henrico County, Petersburg or Richmond and are in need of one or more of these services, below you will find contact information for all associated agencies, according to which type of assistance they are able to provide in which localities, via EFSP funds. Please note that this assistance is not available directly through United Way, nor are all services available through this program in all localities.
