The Virginia Beach Homeless Response System is a systematic and coordinated approach that includes City, nonprofit, and faith organizations working together to address homelessness and help people in need. Housing & Neighborhood Preservation’s Homeless Services Division coordinates this community effort and funds programs that help make homelessness rare, brief, and nonrecurring.
Homeless Services also coordinates our homelessness coalition, known as the BEACH Community Partnership; provides administrative support to the Continuum of Care, and oversees the operations of the Housing Resource Center (HRC).
Our direct programs and services include the HRC family shelter, triage and assessment for homeless and prevention services, and outreach to unsheltered individuals.
In 2017, the City adopted the “Community of One” strategic plan to address homelessness. Community of One represents a shared vision to make homelessness rare, brief, and nonrecurring.
The plan outlines a path toward a future where everyone in Virginia Beach will be able to live in safe, decent and affordable housing. Housing & Neighborhood Preservation is in the process of drafting the goals and strategies to update the “Community of One” plan
