NEST is all new!
The City of Norfolk has set up a temporary shelter, called the CENTER, at the old Greyhound bus station (Brambleton Ave. between Monticello and Granby) for people experiencing homelessness. 75 people each day are able to have breakfast and dinner, use bathroom and shower facilities, spend the day in a safe and air-conditioned space and sleep in a tent.
The Center is staffed by City employees and volunteers.
Donations of clothing are always welcome (Men’s and Women’s new in-package socks and underwear, new and gently used T-shirts, Work pants, jeans, work boots and athletic shoes). Donations of HRT bus passes help guests get to and from work or job interviews.
Volunteers are needed every day for shifts throughout the day and overnight.
