Donate items for formerly homeless residents of The Gosnold Apts run by Virginia Supportive Housing.
We are collecting items to put together “Move-in” packages for the residents, who are formerly homeless and represent the lowest income population in the region.
Items needed are:
kitchen supplies (dish towels, oven mitts, cooking utensils, etc)
bathroom supplies (shower curtain, bath mat, towels,etc)
bedroom items (new pillows, sheets, blankets)
cleaning supplies (broom, mop, bucket, detergent, sponges, etc.)
Learn more about the Gosnold Apts on Mitzvah Day and how you can volunteer to help the residents stay housed, find employment and be successful.
Virginia Supportive Housing (VSH) is a not-for-profit that transforms lives, transforms communities & provides permanent solutions to homelessness. Virginia Supportive Housing provides both permanent housing and support services to the most under served segments of our population. With the adaptive reuse of an RC Cola bottling warehouse, Virginia Supportive Housing (VSH) created Gosnold Apartments, which opened in December 2006 as the first permanent supportive housing development for homeless adults in the region and the first regionally-supported studio apartments for homeless single adults in the nation. The localities of Norfolk, Virginia Beach, and Portsmouth provided funding and rental subsidies. Based on each locality’s contribution, forty-two units are reserved for homeless adults from Norfolk, twelve from Virginia Beach, and six from Portsmouth.
