Shelter's News & Events
H.O.P.E. Foundation Summer Shelton, Last Day November 15,2020
Thank you for your continued commitment and support. I am truly humbled by your unselfish dedication and commitment to helping those that require it the most.
Despite COVID-19, we were able to serve as many as we have before, just under modified conditions. Even though we have officially closed the summer shelter, our work continues to ensure we are ready to reopen on May 21, 2021! For additional help or assistance, the (NEST) Norfolk Emergency System Team will provide Winter Shelter, which begins on December 2, 2020 at the First Presbyterian Church located at 820 Colonial Avenue, Norfolk, Va.
As always, donations are accepted throughout the year via the H.O.P. E. website or by mail (details located under the donation button).
I love you and ALL you do!
