      Life Home We’re proud to provide housing for 300+ people and growing in Hampton Roads. Housing is one of our most basic human needs. Without it, it’s difficult to address other needs—like medical care, mental health, and nutrition. That’s why we offer LGBTQ rapid re-housing for individuals who suddenly find themselves homeless. We also provide permanent housing for LGBTQ and HIV+ individuals and work with them to achieve economic stability, social self-reliance, and better health. Ready to learn more or see if you qualify for housing and utility assistance? Give us a call at 757-640-0929 and ask to speak to our housing team.

                Rapid HIV tests provide results in 20 minutes. Each test requires a drop of blood collected from a small finger prick. When a test is positive, we perform an additional rapid test to confirm the result. All individuals receive counseling before and after the test to ensure they understand the meaning of the results and so they can discuss any risk factors, concerns, and medical care options.

                    Research shows that the biggest protective factor for LGBTQ+ people is SOCIAL SUPPORT.  Support from family, friends, coworkers, classmates, supervisors, teachers, and neighbors are all crucial to LGBTQ+ wellbeing.  In addition to the support listed above, building relationships with other LGBTQ+ people has also shown to increase resilience and reduce feelings of social isolation and invisibility. On this page, you will find a list of our social support groups that are currently meeting virtually and in-person.  If you are interested in joining a particular group, please email the contact listed.  This person can answer any questions you may have about the group and will provide you with the Zoom link, if applicable.   If you have any general questions about our social support group offerings or are having trouble reaching the contact listed, please email community@lgbtlifecenter.org or call us at 757-640-0929. Note: We are currently in the process of relaunching some previous groups that went dormant after COVID, as well as some new offerings!  This page and our Event Calendar will be updated with those as they go live.
