Our Projects

Housing & Neighborhood Preservation strives to expand affordable housing opportunities for the citizens of Virginia Beach and to promote vibrant, well-maintained neighborhoods. Below is a sample of projects we are either planning for or have already accomplished with our partners:  


Judeo-Christian Outreach Center's West Lane Development
Provides transitional housing for 14 homeless veterans and 8 homeless persons with disabilities.

Gosnold, Cloverleaf and South Bay Apartments
Each complex provides permanent housing for 60 homeless single adults. Residents live in their own efficiency apartments, pay rent and have access to on-site counseling and case management services. They are also connected to other resources, training and employment opportunities. The complexes, developed and operated by Virginia Supportive Housing, were made possible through collaboration between the cities of Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk and Portsmouth. Housing & Neighborhood Preservation provides ongoing rental assistance, VSH supports residents with case management. A fourth project, Heron Landing, is underway in Chesapeake.

Cedar Grove
Apartment complex provides 32 units for homeless veterans to be developed by the Virginia Beach Community Development Corporation (VBCDC).

Beth Shalom
Future project
Rehabilitation of 30 apartment units for seniors.

Housing & Neighborhood Preservation, in conjunction with the Virginia Beach Community Development Corporation (VBCDC), support 40 units, which are scattered through Virginia Beach, with project-based vouchers to house homeless and/or disabled families. The department also has an agreement with VBCDC to support project-based assistance for 49 units.
