ftr-homelessness-nf

Dec. 15, 2017 - Hampton participates in the Greater Virginia Peninsula Homelessness Consortium, which gathers governments and non-profits in the region to work together to reduce homelessness. For the record, they’ve made major gains between 2011 and 2017. Based on annual counts, there has been:

  • A 35% decrease in the number of homeless people
  • A 70% decrease in the number of homeless veterans
  • And 84% of the homeless had shelter, at least temporarily, during the coldest months

Hampton and the consortium have identified key segments of the homeless population and are working on targeted solutions to help: Veterans, people with mental illness or substance abuse problems, domestic violence victims, unaccompanied youth, and families. Hampton’s Human Services also has a team of people who visit homeless people, do assessments and work with them to obtain services.
