First Call



For more than 20 years, FIRST CALL INFORMATION & REFERRAL has been the number one source for referral to community services for residents of the Virginia Peninsula. 

If you NEED HELP with food, shelter, rent, utilities or other basic needs, call 757.594.4636.  This telephone hotline is staffed by operators who will talk with you to determine your needs and refer you to the community services that may be able to help.

First Call operators are standing by to take your call, Monday through Friday from 8:30am-6pm. Calls for emergency shelter are taken 24 hours a day, seven days a week.




PLEASE NOTE:  The First Call Directory is no longer available online.  Please contact First Call directly if you are searching for a specific community agency or program.
