HAMPTON, Va. — An RV that was once used to haul Hampton’s books to underserved areas is now being used to shelter the city’s homeless population, reports the Daily Press. The city donated the bookmobile to Hampton Roads Ecumenical Lodging and Provisions, also known as H.E.L.P. Inc.

The Daily Press reports that the HELPMobile will travel throughout the city during times of excessive heat and cold, and residents who need a break from the temperatures will be allowed to relax on board for short periods, according to H.E.L.P. Executive Director Charlotte C. Dillow.

Dillow also said the RV can be stocked with supplies, such as bedding, and be used as a spot for clients to meet with staff and for case management interviews, writes the Daily Press.
