Did you know that 80% of domestic violence victims/survivors stay in abusive relationships because of lack of financial means to leave?

To address this vital issue, we are honored to be a recipient of a grant from @BankofAmerica a, which will help victims/survivors and families experiencing homelessness that need short-term discretionary financial assistance to access essential needs.

Local shelter says lack of affordable housing hindering ability to help domestic abuse victims

“Affordable housing in what is fair market rent in the city of Virginia Beach is just too high for most people who have jobs working at fast-food restaurants or have jobs working at department stores or things like that. The price is just not affordable to them,” Gauthier said.

Samaritan House helps victims of domestic abuse. Their executive director reports their shelters are full and that many of their sister shelters are also at capacity.

This article, ‘Pride Month: Who was Marsha P. Johnson and why were they so important?’ shares their story and why it is so important to highlight their story this month,

“June is Pride Month, where people all over the world come together to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and raise awareness for inequalities that still stand today. The global Black Lives Matter anti-racism protests have encouraged people to shine a special light on the impact of black gay and trans activists.

One person you may have heard about in recent days is Marsha P. Johnson. Marsha P. Johnson was a trans-rights activist who played a big role in important moments for the LGBTQ+ movement, such as the Stonewall protests.”

Juneteenth is a day of freedom and liberation. Today, Samaritan House laments and learns about the mistreatment of Black people in America. We honor and celebrate every victory and continue to stand in solidarity for liberation and freedom for all.

"Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. From its Galveston, Texas origin in 1865, the observance of June 19th as the African American Emancipation Day has spread across the United States and beyond. Juneteenth commemorates African American freedom and emphasizes education and achievement."

Hampton Roads community leaders use Pride Month to discuss intimate partner violence

Make plans to join us on June 17 at 7 p.m. to learn about intimate partner violence (IPV) in the LGBTQ+ community and local resources and support available.

Amid a palette of rainbow colors and celebratory spirits, some local advocates hope that Pride Month offers an opportunity to boost awareness of the resources available to LGBTQ individuals in Hampton Roads experiencing domestic, intimate partner and family violence.

Our Story

Samaritan House is Hampton Roads’ trusted violence resource offering services to stop violence with education and training, safety planning and court assistance; and services to heal violence with counseling, support groups, children’s programs and more. Samaritan House is Virginia's largest emergency housing provider serving the community since 1984. We are serving victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking as well as individuals and families experiencing homelessness. We are the official nonprofit partner organization in the Hampton Roads Human Trafficking Task Force. Our administrative office is located in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and accredited through the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance. We operate over ten emergency safe houses throughout Hampton Roads, and serve residents across the entire region. Victim Advocacy The Victim Advocacy Program helps families and individuals protect themselves physically and legally through referrals, one-on-one intervention, court accompaniment, and counseling. Advocates help design safety and prevention strategies and make connections with community resources. All non-shelter Victim Advocacy services are accessible by calling the Crisis Hotline: (757) 430-2120. Education & Outreach While Samaritan House is dedicated to providing immediate services and shelter to clients in need, we are equally as devoted to the prevention of domestic violence and homelessness in our community. Our Victim Advocate and Prevention Education programs present free workshops and trainings to middle school, high school and college students; the medical community; law enforcement; the faith-based community; civic organizations; the military; and the general public. We host awareness campaigns throughout the year and participate in legal advocacy efforts on issues related to domestic violence and homeless prevention.

You all have not given us a bag in ages and I have things I'd like to donate. I have older bags from you I can use, I just never know whenever your pickups are. For some reason no one has given us a bag on our door in at least a month. I'm in the Kings Grant area. I do not use Facebook much. I tried to email the email on your website but no response. Please contact me at [email protected] with your response, otherwise I will have to give to someone else, and these are nice clothes and I'd like the women to receive them.
Happy Thanksgiving to All!!! Miss you all very much! And its freezing here in DC!!
