  • If you have youth or children on your team, they will need to have their parent or guardian sign a printed paper waiver.
  • Someone on your team (like you!) must take a photo of all child/youth waivers and send them to waivers@cnoy.com.

About Portsmouth Volunteers for the Homeless

We have a mission at Portsmouth Volunteers for the Homeless and many see it as sheltering and operating a day service center; however, those of us who are truly “sold out” for the mission see it as a lot more…


...we see it as helping to build confidence, restore faith and rekindle hope and influencing the paradigm of our perceptions about homelessness.


When a person thinks they are worthy of more, they behave as if they deserve better than their current circumstances…and since we know that our thoughts are the seeds of our actions, when we inspire and rekindle hope, we have the ability to change behavior and changed behavior can change lives.


Our Coldest Night of the Year 5K Walk reminds us life is sometimes uncomfortable and yet there is hope for better tomorrows! Join us as we walk for better tomorrows!
