What’s Project Homeless Connect?

VIRGINIA BEACH — Families and individuals experiencing homelessness or a housing crisis will be able to access a variety of supportive services and resources during Project Homeless Connect on Jan. 23.

The event will be from 8 a.m. to noon at the Virginia Beach Housing Resource Center, 104 N. Witchduck Road.

It will feature one-stop access to services and resources designed to assist families and individuals in moving closer to preventing or ending their homelessness, according to a news release from the city.

Those include housing resources, social services, legal resources, veterans’ services, and other related resources. Participants may also receive donated services from local businesses and organizations, such as health and dental screenings and haircuts.

Project Homeless Connect is sponsored by Virginia Beach Housing and Neighborhood Preservation and BEACH, or “Bringing an End to all City Homelessness,” a community partnership between city, nonprofit and faith-based organizations.
