When one is homeless and sleeps in their vehicle what are some of the safest areas to park and sleep??
Why was Virginia Beach Housing Resource Center closed for part of today?
Jesus Christ is and will always be my praise...
Does Virginia have any clearing- house keeping photos and names of homeless and transient individuals?
I noticed the land on the southeast corner of Bridneck and 19th Street is being clear-cut for a Sports Center. The project sounds positive but the location deeply troubles me. There are so few undeveloped areas left near the Oceanfront and I hate to see our big native trees/forests being destroyed when there are many existing properties that desperately need RE-development. Please no more destruction of untouched land. Let's use and improve land that's already been bulldozed. The destruction of forest land will only contribute to habitat loss for native birds and other animals (i.e. foxes) that keep our insect and rodent populations in check (we know tickbourne diseases such as Lyme are on the rise and will likely increase at an alarming rate). And paving over forest land leads to hotter temperatures around our city. Climate change is no joke and our city needs to make wiser choices accordingly.
I want to volunteer to make videos of your beautiful parks and programs like this. I love the humanity of it and the environmental aspects of it. Thanks.
I had the pleasure of touring the soon to be opened HRC today and I must say I was completely surprised and impressed. To see the benefits this facility will provide to the homeless population I believe will be life changing. It warms my heart to know the people I see often, sometimes every day, on the side of the street will have a place to go. I can now be part of the change and actually know I'm helping to make a difference, if I just tell one person where to go to get help and they ACTUALLY ARE HELPED. #Iwillmakeadifference
