The ForKids Housing Crisis Hotline is the central point of contact throughout Hampton Roads for all persons experiencing a housing crisis in need of shelter, case management, and related services.
Not sure if you are experiencing a housing crisis? Ask yourself these two questions:
Are you living on the street or in an emergency shelter?
Have you received a 72 hour eviction notice from the Sheriff?
If you answer yes to either of those questions or if you are unsure, please call the Housing Crisis Hotline. The Hotline staff will work to connect you to available services with local providers. You will be interviewed by an intake specialist to determine which community resource makes the most sense based on your situation and what's available.
