They could be couch-surfing, or packed into an apartment without a lease, or living in a car. For Loudoun County youth (up to age 24) who are unstably housed or homeless, Mobile Hope is there to provide wraparound care and support. Offered at its Leesburg facility and via a mobile bus service, its homelessness prevention program helps kids in precarious housing to cover their basic needs (food, clothing, hygiene care) and, at the same time, to prepare for safe, independent lives – from paying SAT testing fees, to providing classes in money management, to securing employment. Youth who literally have no roof over their heads receive crisis care, including emergency shelter, long-term housing support, and case management to address mental health issues and sub- stance abuse. Last year, more than 3,000 Loudoun County youth accessed these services. Let’s not leave them alone.

Covid-19 Update: Since the beginning of the pandemic, MobileHope has increased its bus distribution services (clothing, meals, gift cards, basic needs) from eight stops a month to 15-20 stops per week as the need for its services has grown.
