A little more about ForKids: 


"ForKids, founded in 1988, is a non-profit agency that works to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty for families and children. We provide housing, educational programming, and medical care services to families throughout Hampton Roads. Our programs include mental and physical healthcare assessments, tutoring, life skills education and employment counseling, and more. We provide opportunities to our families, not hand-outs, to empower them to reach self-sufficiency."
