News : Samaritan House Gets Grant for Call Center
Oct 14, 2014 -- The Hampton Roads Community Foundation has awarded a two-year grant to Samaritan House.
The grant will allow the charity to expand a call center connecting the homeless to shelter and services.
The other grant recipients are:

The center will help low- and moderate-income families become more financially secure, according to a news release from the foundation.
