We have a simple mission: to end childhood homelessness.
Nationally 1 in 45 children will become homeless this year that is 1.6 million children living in the United States alone.
Hotel Kids Inc.,is an advocate for the hungry and displaced. We travel to every corner of the Hampton Roads area to help children and families in need. No need is too small and no voice is too quiet to be heard. Our agency serves as a resource for hotel families. From distributing items needed for hotel survival, helping with employment searches, providing housing and rental assistance, mentoring homeless children, providing tutors Hotel Kids Inc,. serves as a connecting bridge between community resources and homeless families all year long. Through our outreach programs and governmental advocacy our goals are to change the lives of theses children forever
Hotel Kids Inc., has declared a state of emergency due to the threat of dangerous weather approaching the East Coast. We have 12 children who will be riding this storm out in their cars!!! Since all shelters are full, this at risk population is in great danger. The lack of funds from governmental agencies in conjunction with the fact that hotel rent is so expensive is making preparation for the projected storm extremely difficult at best. Many of our families go without basic needs and will not have the means to gather supplies or relocate if flooding occurs. Any help that can be offered is welcomed..Please do not forget about our homeless children.!!! You are all they have!!! We are still in desperate need of diapers, food, flash lights, coolers, and monetary donations of any kind. Please find and follow us on Facebook at HOTEL KIDS.ORG to stay updated on our needs and help us in support of theses precious children.

“Without Hotel Kids help my son and I would still be sleeping in our car. In less than 24 hours they were able to get us from our car into a home. I never thought people like that existed in this world. They have truly blessed my family. Their are no words to express what they do."
Hotel Kids Family
“I never realized how many homeless children lived in hotel. It is heartbreaking. By being a part of Hotel Kids I get to make a lasting impact on children in need. Volunteering with Hotel Kids opened my eyes and heart to a whole world of people I can help!”
