Homelessness

Families and individuals who are homeless or in imminent danger of losing their home should first call the Regional Housing Crisis Hotline at (757) 227-5932. A specialist will screen calls and determine the nature of the housing crisis. Depending on the situation, referrals may be made to Virginia Beach Housing & Neighborhood Preservation for further assessment. The most vulnerable homeless families and individuals will be sheltered and housed at the Housing Resource Center or at nonprofit facilities in the community as space is available.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​Housing and Neighborhood Preservation is committed to helping the homeless and preventing families and individuals from  becoming homeless. The department provides funding to several organizations and has partnered with neighboring cities on regional housing projects for the homeless in Virginia Beach. We also provide staff support to the BEACH (Bringing an End to All City Homelessness) Community Partnership, a collaboration of the faith community, non-profit providers, the business community and local government, whose mission is to end homelessness in the City of Virginia Beach.
