Revive Community

Revive Community of Virginia partners every summer with local community partners and sponsors to have Summer Homies, a festival of resources aimed at serving the displaced, houseless, underserved, and unsheltered communities in Norfolk, VA. Summer Homies is a festival of resources that provides essential services at no cost to the most vulnerable individuals in the community.

This festival will offer a wide range of services to address the diverse needs of the community. These services will include haircuts, manicures, and showers to promote personal hygiene and self-care. Laundry services and the provision of new socks and undergarments will also be available to ensure basic clothing needs are met.

In addition to personal care services, Summer Homies will also offer hot meals to address food insecurity and provide much-needed nutrition to those in need. Mental health checks and physical exams, including blood pressure and blood sugar tests, will be provided to support individuals’ overall health and well-being.

The goal of Summer Homies is to serve 500-1,000 individuals during a one-day program. This large-scale event aims to provide a significant impact on the lives of those in need in the Norfolk community, offering vital resources to support their physical, mental, and emotional well-being. The collaborative effort of Revive Community of Virginia and its local community partners highlights the power of working together to address the needs of vulnerable populations. By pooling resources and expertise, the program can provide a comprehensive range of services to address the diverse needs of the target population in a single event.

Summer Homies exemplifies the spirit of community engagement and service, demonstrating a commitment to helping those who are facing challenges such as displacement, homelessness, and lack of access to essential resources. The program aims to make a positive impact on the lives of individuals in need, offering support, care, and resources to promote their well-being.
