30 years ago, homeless families were sleeping on the beaches of Ocean View in Norfolk. Local churches had one collective thought - this does not have to be - and Haven House shelter was founded.
The house has served us well but we have a responsibility to do better than sleeping families on the floor in overflow conditions. In October 2019 we broke ground on the Center for Children and Families in Chesapeake, allowing us to double our current shelter capacity.

Center for Children and Families Groundbreaking - September 2019
How do you break the cycle of poverty and homelessness?
You educate children.
Homelessness and housing instability profoundly impacts the educational
progress for most children. We help our kids catch up to their peers.
"There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children."
A global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
