Virginia Beach Winter Shelter
Located in Virginia Beach, Virginia, Volunteers of America Chesapeake's Winter Shelter provides emergency services to more than 60 homeless adults each night between the hours of 9pm and 7am from October to April. Through outreach efforts, word-of-mouth and local police department referrals, individuals seeking shelter are encouraged to report to a designated central location and are then transported to a site where cots, bedrolls, food and coffee are available.
On a rotating basis, various churches in Virginia Beach host the shelter and prepare meals. At 7:00 a.m. the following morning, clients leave the shelter until the next evening's collection period. Established in 1990, this program is truly a partnership between local churches and public agencies, orchestrated by Volunteers of America Chesapeake.
