Break the Cycle: $10K donation to VB’s Samaritan House will help domestic violence survivors

“We want to look at it positively. We want to hope that the violence stops, but realistically it’s not. This will help us with and providing a way out for people looking for a way out of a violent situation.”

Yesterday, GFL Environmental USA Inc. donated $10,000 to Samaritan House after first learning about our mission through the donations department.

It's because of people like Edward Hobson, our Resource and Volunteer Coordinator, who speaks passionately about what we do that these connections are made!

“This will help us house at least another 60 to 70 survivors this year.”

Local investigators and nonprofit spot new trends in human trafficking

“The reason we’re seeing this intersection of sex trafficking and narcotics trafficking [is] because criminals can make a profit from selling drugs and selling sex. In addition, narcotics can be sold once. Whereas an individual can be sold multiple times."

Human trafficking is real, and it's happening here in Hampton Roads.

You can make a contribution to support survivors of this awful crime by donating to our programs. We provide housing, counseling, job training and advocacy to individuals who have experienced all forms of human trafficking.

"What we're talking about here is folks that are essentially hidden in plain sight," said Jason Yarashes, an attorney with the Legal Aid Justice Center.

When the media covers trafficking it's typically referring to sex trafficking. But we shouldn't forget about the very real issue that is labor trafficking.

"Due to the lack of information and education about labor trafficking, I think we just uncovered the surface and I think there are many more out there," said Pierce.

Human trafficking may not be what you think it is...

This crime is the fastest growing criminal enterprise in the world, but it happens here in America, in fact Virginia ranks 6th for the most human trafficking cases on federal court dockets. And Hampton Roads is a hotbed for this heinous crime.

We say this not to cause fear, but to urge our community to learn more about this issue and understand what makes people and communities vulnerable to human trafficking.

Our team's experts are available to come to your group to provide education and training about what exactly human trafficking is (and isn't) and share opportunities to get involved and make a real difference here in our community.

We recently had the opportunity to chime in on a conversation with other experts on what it means to provide opportunities for women who have experienced violence and trafficking on HearSay with Cathy Lewis.

Our Vocational Specialist, Anaiz Kendrix, shared some of her insight into why this process can be so challenging for the women we work with, especially considering the burden of complex trauma.

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Every year we are blown away by the support from the community as we share our needs and lean on Hampton Roads residents, businesses and churches to fill gaps for our programs.

But we are always particularly impressed with the love and generosity that shines through around the holidays. Children who decide to collect toys and food for families in need. Churches who coordinate a special tithe or item drive for our mission. Businesses who roll up their sleeves to do a bit of hands-on volunteer work to clean and decorate our emergency houses.

We are so grateful!

We feel so grateful that our supporters on this page do such a wonderful job of spreading the word anytime there's a specific item our families need.

Right now, we have a shortage of pillows and blankets, and these items could really come in handy during these colder nights!

We typically accept all new and gently used items but when it comes to bedding we would love to be able to give the adults and kids in our programs something NEW this holiday season to keep them cozy and warm.

Please if you can, drop off donations of pillows and blankets to our donations department, located on the left-hand side of our main admin building: 2620 Southern Blvd. in Virginia Beach. This department is open M-F from 10-4.

We wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Today we are thankful for the many generous folks in our community who have shown their commitment to making this holiday a bright one for the families we serve, so they don't skip a beat in enjoying a hot Thanksgiving feast.

Thank you to Church of The Ascension and Catholic Church of St. Mark for providing turkey dinner baskets for our families for so many years, as well as FLOW Sisterhood and Living Word Ministry assisting this Thanksgiving.

Additionally thank you to students and faculty from ECPI who signed on to do monthly shelter cleanings with us starting this summer. They adopted and cleaned one of our emergency shelters Saturday and donated a Thanksgiving basket for the clients currently living in the house.

It takes a village, and we are so thankful for ours!

“Welcome Home” Move-in Kits for Families

Housing is the key to a fresh start after violence.

After escaping abuse, many individuals struggle finding an affordable place to go. The last thing we want is for someone to feel forced back into the violence, simply because of a lack of money to get started on their own.

Almost 50% of the women who receive Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, the government's primary aid program, cite domestic violence as a factor in the need for assistance.

No child deserves to have their innocence shattered by seeing violence in their home.

Most children who witness domestic violence experience PTSD-like symptoms. Witnessing violence affects children’s abilities to learn. They may have difficulty focusing and concentrating in school and peer relationships are strained.

We are on a mission to break the cycles of violence. Because no child should be caught in the middle of abuse in the home.

Intimate partner violence is most often portrayed and understood as heterosexual couples, commonly a male aggressor and a female victim. This narrative does not paint a complete picture of who is affected by domestic violence.

Violence doesn’t discriminate, and neither does Samaritan House. We offer free and confidential services to individuals who have been victimized by violence in our region, no matter their sexual orientation or gender expression. We are proud to be an ally and a trusted resource for the LGBTQ community.

If you or someone you know feels unsafe or threatened in your relationship, please call the 24-hour crisis hotline at 757-430-2120

    What about the same bully being a member of this group, watching what I do & say. No protection. I can't speak out. The bully will retaliate. No safe haven from a bully. People find it important to inform them of what I do. So I am always hiding..
    Well in the USA our culture gives bullies the right of a ownership. Can't say or do any thing about a bully. Just keep walking away , right. Then that bully calls the police and wants to files charges . Because the police believe the caller. The bully is free to go again.
