Ways to Help

Support Our Mission - Give

When you donate, you have the power to choose where your money goes.

If you’d like to support all of the work we do, you can make a general donation. If you have a heart for a specific ministry, you are welcome to add a comment to your donation, and your donation will support the cause of your choice.

Join the Mission - Volunteer

With only a few full-time staff members, HELP thrives because of our dedicated volunteers.

In a group or by yourself, just for the day or on a regular basis; there are many ways to volunteer. Be a part of bringing hope to       Hampton Roads. HELP is possible because of volunteers like you.

Be a Part of “A Night’s Welcome”

From November – March, “A Night’s Welcome” provides our homeless neighbors with a hot meal, safe warm shelter for the night, toiletries, fellowship, and breakfast in the morning.

Help with a Meal

We’re always in need of groups to come help prepare and serve a meal for our guests. Some days we feed as many as 100 people.
