– PIN currently has 5 houses that we use to help get homeless families off the street. PIN believes in keeping families together, so we will continue to look for ways to get homeless families in housing.Emergency Shelter
– An emergency shelter would be a safe place for the homeless to sleep at night to keep them out of the weather and away from the dangers that come with living on the street. There are thousands of people that are homeless in Hampton Roads and PIN believes that providing shelter is a great way to show people how much God loves them.
– PIN would like to open a medical clinic to meet the needs of the homeless. Homeless people don’t have easy access to doctors and nurses; however, PIN has awesome doctors and nurses that volunteer to provide free medical for the homeless. A clinic would provide the perfect environment to provide these services. A medical clinic would also minimize emergency room visits by the homeless which are very costly for tax payers.
– PIN would like to provide an environment and people to equip the homeless with the skills that they need to acquire employment.Job Placement
– PIN would like to partner with employers to get homeless people employment.
– PINnacle is PIN’s Sunday Biblical service for the homeless. In August 2005 PINnacle started with 2 homeless people, today PINnacle has about 80 people attending every Sunday. PIN looks forward to growing our Biblical services to include more of the homeless.Recovery Groups
– In 2008, PIN formalized partnership with Recovery for Life to provide recovery groups for the homeless of Virginia Beach. In the future, PIN envisions recovery groups for the homeless that meet every day of the week.Mentorship
– PIN has groups that meet during the week that consist of current homeless people, former homeless people, and PIN volunteers, that study the Bible and talk about how their lives are going. PIN currently has two groups that serve about 30 people, but are looking to expand these groups in the future.
