Housing Resource Center Will be the First of Its Kind in the Region

The Housing Resource Center, scheduled to open this year at the corner of Witchduck Road and Southern Boulevard, will combine shelter and housing for families and singles, supportive services and community resources in one facility to help people leave homelessness behind. 

The Housing Resource Center is a one-stop-shop of essential services, shelter and housing for homeless families and individuals. At the center, our community system of City agencies, nonprofit service providers and faith organizations will be able to continue and grow our efforts to make homelessness rare, brief and nonrecurring.

The Housing Resource Center will provide new opportunities and resources for homeless families and individuals to put down roots. On day one, 118 individuals and families can be off the street and sheltered or permanently housed at the center when it opens later this year.

During the Virginia Beach City Council's briefing on March 20, Virginia Beach Housing & Neighborhood Preservation provided an update on the project and how services will be delivered at the new center.
