Guiding Young Girls (GYG) was established in February 2011 in order to offer gender specific “females only” services that were client centered yet family focused. Our agency offers realistic alternatives to inappropriate behaviors caused by psychological and environmental factors. We utilize a holistic empowerment approach to our ecological method of treatment. Our goal is to assist our clients and their families with maximizing their internal resources to achieve positive outcomes.
Assistance to disadvantaged for housing, utilities, prescriptions, dental care, household goods, clothing.
The mission of the Western Tidewater Free Clinic is to provide high-quality, non-emergency health care to the residents of Western Tidewater who cannot otherwise afford it.
We serve residents of Suffolk, Franklin, Isle of Wight County, and Southampton County, age 19-64, with no medical and/or dental insurance, who live at or below 200% of the federal poverty level.
The Luter Family YMCA provides a safe, family-oriented environment, and a gathering place for thousands of kids, families, seniors and individuals. In its previous life, part of the Luter Family YMCA was Smithfield High School. It was leased to the YMCA by the County of Isle of Wight in 1995. It was renovated in 2004 and again in 2012 with the expansion of the Wellness Center, Child Watch and Group Exercise rooms.
Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia is the regional organization in South Hampton Roads that supports and enriches the lives of seniors and their families through advocacy, education, information and comprehensive services. For one-third of a century, we’ve changed the lives of tens of thousands of the region’s seniors for the better. We’ve served over two million meals, contributed more than six million hours of senior volunteer services, driven seniors over 11 million miles and helped thousands of seniors live in their homes independently as an alternative to nursing home care.
