Congregation Based Shelter Project (CBSP)

Our Emergency Housing program, Congregation Based Shelter Project (CBSP), provides shelter for up to two families through a partnership with Emory Beacon of Light (EBOL), a nonprofit community development organization established as an outgrowth of the ministries of Emory United Methodist Church in 1996. The families live in a house owned and maintained by EBOL and receive case management support from Capitol Hill Group Ministry (CHGM). Families work with CHGM staff to move from crisis to stability and to meet the education, training, employment and other goals that will enable them to become economically self-sufficient and move into more permanent housing. Volunteers from both CHGM and EBOL provide additional support and mentoring to families during their stay with us.

CHGM’s housing program participants are selected on a referral basis through the Virginia Williams Resource Center and The Community Partnership. Homeless families and individuals in Washington, DC looking for shelter services should contact:
