Langley for Families Foundation presented a $2,500 check to ForKids to provide regional emergency shelter for families. ForKids serves homeless families in Norfolk, Chesapeake, Suffolk, Franklin, Southampton and Isle of Wight County. Their mission is to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty for families and children.
"Regional emergency shelter is both one of our community’s strongest needs and most limited resources. The generosity we’ve received from Langley for Families will not only help us provide emergency shelter to families with children who would otherwise sleep in cars or on streets, but will also help us fulfill our mission of breaking the cycle of homelessness and poverty for families and children."
