Winter Shelter

​​​​The Winter Shelter will begin Nov. 20, 2019 and run through March 18, 2020. Individuals will need to check in each day that overnight shelter is needed. Shelter space is limited. Spots are provided through random selection (not first com​e, first served). Check-in times and locations are as follows:​

​​​​Days​Check-In Time​Where to Check In
​Monday - Friday​3 – 5 p.m.
104 N. Witchduck Road
​Saturday and Sunday​3 – 5 p.m.
​Judeo-Christian Outreach Center (JCOC)
1053 Virginia Beach Blvd.
Transportation is provided from the check-in location to the shelter site. Each individual is allowed to bring one bag that is able to fit underneath their seat on the bus or on their lap. Participants are picked up from the shelter site and dropped off at the Housing Resource Center or ​JCOC, depending on the day.

JCOC, under a contract with Virginia Beach Housing and Neighborhood Preservation, operates the Winter Shelter program and provides participants with transportation. Participating faith organizations rotate weekly to provide overnight shelter and meals. Some organizations may also provide additional support and resources, such as toiletries and clothing.

Families with children experiencing homelessness who need overnight shelter should call the Regional Housing Crisis Hotline at (757) 227-5932.
