Low Acuity Transitional Support (LATS)

Program Overview

Washington County, Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center, and Greater Good Northwest non-congregate shelter have partnered to create a Low Acuity Transitional Support (LATS) program. It serves houseless individuals who receive medical intervention with low acuity recovery needs in Washington County.


Individuals will be sheltered at GGNW, given medical support from VGMHC, and connected to housing resources. The mission is to give people a stable, safe environment to recuperate and be put on the path to permanent housing.
