What we do
Change the World RVA is a 501(c)3 established to support high school and college students in Richmond, Virginia who are experiencing homelessness and housing instability. We partner with an army of volunteers, churches, and organizations to make a meaningful difference in the lives of homeless youth. We are an all-volunteer organization. We are the only organization in the region that specifically addresses the needs of high school and college students experiencing homelessness.
