Barrett Transitional Home in Norfolk, VA

... is a program for homeless single women and single pregnant women designed to help break the cycle of homelessness.

The women we serve have nowhere to live for a variety of reasons. Underemployment, unemployment, bad credit, substance abuse, domestic violence, and being unable to work while pregnant are just a few.

When an individual has no safe place to sleep, shower and eat, it is almost impossible to move forward with their life. Barrett provides the first step in transition by providing a safe, supervised and stable environment. Along with a stable environment, Barrett's staff will connect women with the necessary supportive services to get back on their feet.

Barrett provides dormatory style, furnished bedrooms and a common living area and kitchen for a maximum of ten women at a time.

We ask for your assistance, to help us ensure, that...

No Woman is ever Alone.

Nothing is predestined: The obstacles of your past can become the gateways that lead to new beginnings.
