Residents of the Hampton Roads Virginia region that are facing homelessness can get help from transitional housing programs. Non-profits, charities, and churches in the region support those facing eviction and even the currently homeless.
As part of the assistance offered, clients will almost always need to participate in self-sufficiency type programs. This will include activities such as job training, financial literacy, and general life skills development. The low income housing, apartments, and homes provide members of the community a place to stay while they address the challenges they are facing.
Transitional housing and emergency shelters are provided for veterans, single parents, children, and seniors in the Hampton Roads area. While not everyone will qualify for assistance, and there are often waiting lists, the non-profits do an effective job of helping the needy and less fortunate in the community.
Resources are available for the counties of Gloucester, Isle of Wight, James City, Mathews, and York. Many cities are also part of the Hampton Roads region. So additional housing assistance is for families in Chesapeake, Hampton, Virginia Beach, Newport News, Portsmouth, Norfolk, Poquoson, Suffolk, and nearby Williamsburg.
