Transitional Housing Program

Since April of 1988, VBCDC has provided an innovative Transitional Housing Program for homeless families and individuals. This program is funded through the Department of Housing and Urban Development Supportive Housing Program. The City of Virginia Beach Department of Housing and Neighborhood Preservation also supports this program with the Community Development Block Grant Funds and Emergency Shelter Grant funds.

The Transitional Housing Program is not simply an affordable housing program. This program provides both affordable housing and support services to homeless families and individuals for up to two years. The Program is designed to provide homeless families and individuals with the opportunity to achieve independence and self-sufficiency. VBCDC staff assists the participants in the program in developing a goal plan with specific steps to take in order to achieve their goals.

In addition to goal planning, VBCDC provides an array of support services to the families and individuals in this program. It also works in conjunction with local agencies to provide a comprehensive approach to helping residents maintain employment, increase their skills and income, and obtain permanent housing.

Participants in the program are eligible for the following services:

Child Care
Transportation
Education/Training Assistance
Health/Dental Assistance
Utility Assistance
Emergency Food Assistance

Housing Start-up Assistance

These services assist the homeless family in becoming more independent and self sufficient. Case managers work with the family in assessing needs and in developing and monitoring goal plans.
