Who We Are

COFM is the only emergency winter shelter program serving homeless men, women and families in the Greater Williamsburg Area.

Established in 2012, we are a collaboration of more than 30 faith-based congregations, a dozen community partners, and thousands of volunteers offering help and hope to the area’s most vulnerable citizens. 

Governed by a passionate Board of Directors and managed by an Executive Director and Shelter Managers, COFM is a 501(c)(3) organization serving as a bridge between living unsheltered and finding permanent housing.
