Programs that Serve the Disconnected Youth

​​​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.
