While people across Hampton Roads are preparing their homes for Hurricane Florence, Williamsburg House of Mercy is working quickly to help the homeless find shelter. As we speak, teams are in the process of putting all of the known unsheltered homeless in our community in motels. In addition, the Mercy Housing team will be going out later today to do street outreach to the panhandlers. Also, housing clients who are still in active case management status will be receiving a delivery of food, water, batteries, and a lantern Wednesday afternoon.
