The Regional Housing Crisis Hotline is the starting point for anyone who is experiencing a housing crisis throughout Greater Hampton Roads and in need of shelter, case management, and related services and/or community resources.

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 an eviction notice from your landlord?

If you answer “yes” to either of these questions, please call the Regional Housing Crisis Hotline.  Hotline staff will work to connect you to available services with local providers. An intake specialist will interview you to determine which referral makes the most sense, based on your situation and what’s available in the community.  The Hotline does not provide any direct financial assistance.

For other human service needs in Hampton Roads,  please dial 2-1-1.
