We’re excited to be a part of #Brushworks with the Virginia Beach Cultural Affairs Department! Stay tuned for more scenes from #BehindtheBrush! 🎨🖌

This summer, the Virginia Beach Cultural Affairs Department, in partnership with the Department of Housing and Neighborhood Preservation, launched #Brushworks, a pilot arts employment program for individuals who are experiencing homelessness or who are formerly homeless. The mission of Brushworks is to incorporate socially impactful public art thoughtfully into public space. For the pilot program’s first project, the team worked with professional artist, Nadd Harvin, in the design and installation of public art murals on shipping containers located at the Housing Resource Center, which will provide additional storage at the facility. During the program, the artists developed skills to expand their future employment opportunities, including growing their creativity through the arts.

Stay tuned in the coming days for more scenes #BehindTheBrush!

This project was made possible by the generosity of the VB Home Now Foundation and its supporters, including TowneBank, Ferguson Cares and IKEA. #vbarts

To help prevent injuries or tragedies caused by the collapse of decks, balconies and porches, Code Enforcement recommends residents have these structures inspected by a licensed professional each year. Regular inspections and maintenance are especially important because these structures are often built with materials that weather and deteriorate over time and frequent use.

Resources are available to help with proper maintenance and basic safety checks: www.vbgov.com/codeenforcement

Any idea when "The City" will spray/fog for mosquitoes?
YouSuck!
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
