Mary is a mother of 2 and grandmother of 4 who lives on disability income. When one of her daughters lost custody of her children due to negligence, Mary accepted full custody and took them into her home. Raising two small children comes with a lot of expenses! The CAPS staff met with Mary, listened to her story, prayed with her, and provided some solutions. CAPS was able to assist Mary with some of the initial expenses while she sought long-term solutions to her new situation. CAPS also connected Mary to a local work program that hired her.

Emergency Assistance

We assist Suffolk residents who are experiencing crises by assessing their needs, praying with them, providing information and resources and directly contributing financially. Our staff meets one-on-one with individuals and families to seek to provide the most appropriate and effective assistance. Every person is unique and every situation is different so we provide tailored services rather than one-size-fits-all solutions.

Rashad is homeless and has been staying with various friends and relatives or in motels for months. During his meeting with CAPS, he learned of over 20 food pantries and free meals in Suffolk. He also learned of an opportunity to earn income through a local church’s community garden. By reducing the cost of food and increasing his income slightly, he has new strategies for reaching a stable housing situation.

George had admittedly burned some bridges in his life but was trying to get back on his feet. He had a job but he couldn’t pay for a motel and save for a security deposit on a permanent apartment. The Night Stay Program enabled him to stay somewhere for free and save on food so he could put enough money aside to move into an apartment.

Night Stay Program

The Night Stay Program is a rotating night shelter for people experiencing homelessness in the winter months. Churches take turns hosting the program for a week at a time, opening their doors to provide shelter, food, safety and a listening ear to our neighbors.

Request Shelter

If you are experiencing homelessness and need shelter call 757-935-5497 (after hours, call 757-286-9126) or email nightstay@capsuffolk.org.
