HELP maintains a very limited number of shelter beds year round for the Emergency Shelter program. Referrals are only accepted through the Housing Crisis Hotline (757-587-4202) and space is incredibly limited. This program provides a short-term subsidized shelter to help individuals get back on their feet and end the cycle of homelessness. It includes intensive case management to ensure clients are working toward self-sufficiency.
The HELP Day Center is located at 329 Buckroe Avenue in Hampton.
The 109 bus drops off in front of the building.
The 115 and 120 drop off just 1 block away.
