Community Engagement Street Team

Norfolk's Department of Human Services realizes that many residents struggle to access benefits programs, assistance and support services due to a lack of transportation. 

To address that need, Norfolk Department of Human Services is bringing that much-needed access right in neighborhoods with the Community Engagement Street Team every week. 

Resources include: 

  • Benefits applications
  • Tangible resources (food, water, personal care items, etc.) 
  • Referrals for service
  • Intensive case management assistance
  • Support and additional help


The Community Engagement Street Team hits the road on Thursdays from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
