We see on a regular basis how criminals prey on our homeless citizens.

They have enough to overcome from their own actions than to also be used by others in their "get-rich-quick" scams.

The plight and issues of homelessness are complex. We need fully-funded comprehensive solutions. #LiftingHeartsLiftingLives

Some will see "problem people;" we see "people with potential."

We coach and mentor daily as part of our client engagement. Sometimes we believe in our clients when they've loss confidence in themselves.

COVID-19 has wrecked a lot...yet there are some silver-linings.

When we have our guests in our care day and night, we see different results.

Whether it's positive health outcomes, more confidence to take on the challenges of their sobriety or mental health needs or simply the reduced stress of knowing they will lay their heads in a warmer and safer place with a hearty dinner meal -- residential sheltering makes a difference for better tomorrows.

When a person's basic needs are met, they can focus on rebuilding.

As many of you are aware, we have continued our shelter services during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Given our current pandemic conditions, PVH is defining "a new way forward" for our shelter services.

This new way will be the "PVH Adopt-a-Week" Shelter Program.

Stay tuned for more information...

This right here made me so happy! When he told me that he was going to get his voter registration card, I told him that he would definitely be making a step towards his future. When he came in the following day and told me that he was able to vote right then and he was nervous as a first time voter but happy that he was able to do it, I told him Congratulations and that his vote does count! I’m so proud of him!

And then this happened...

Thank you to the volunteer who assisted in getting the information needed for this to happen!

Lifting Hearts. Lifting Lives.

We have a mission at Portsmouth Volunteers for the Homeless and many see it as sheltering and operating a day service center; however, those of us who are truly “sold out” for the mission see it as a lot more…we see it as helping to build confidence, restore faith and rekindle hope.

When a person thinks they are worthy of more, they behave as if they deserve better than their current circumstances…and since we know that our thoughts are the seeds of our actions, when we inspire and rekindle hope, we have the ability to change behavior and changed behavior can change lives.
