Our Mission: Breaking the cycle of homelessness and poverty for families & children

Established in May 1988 to provide emergency shelter to families and children, ForKids has grown to become one of the largest providers of homeless services to families in Virginia.


Our team is data driven, trauma-informed and deeply committed to helping families and children thrive. We believe stable housing, a great education and a healthy, diverse community are essential to the welfare of our families. 


In 14 cities and counties in Southeastern Virginia, ForKids delivers quality individualized client-focused solutions designed to achieve stability for families and a lifetime of success for children.

We are here to help families stabilize

…. and grow roots.
