See Us in Action
See our volunteers serve the community and veterans from all walks of life.
Connect on Social
Our volunteers are working hard to improve the lives of veterans every single day. Take a look at some of the great moments of community service and life change at Veteran’s Homefront by connecting with us on social.
Chesapeake Homeless Parking Lot Ministry
This takes place every Saturday morning at the Chesapeake Big Box store parking lot where VHF and its team of volunteers provide food, toiletries, snacks and resources to those living out of their cars, trucks or minivans. The items are provided on rotation by churches and organizations. They also provide the car bound homeless individuals and families with nourishment for the body, mind and soul through devotional, prayers and motivational talks.

Founder – Antione Hines
Following his honorable discharge from the U.S. Navy in 2009, CEO Antione Hines was a decorated yet unemployed veteran who came home to a community unprepared to meet his & his daughters needs.
Recognizing an opportunity for service and leadership, Antione spent years volunteering with Chesapeake and the surrounding cities to fight homelessness and unemployment. At the same time, he accomplished two internships, a fellowship with The Mission Continues, and completed his third bachelor’s degree. All while unemployed, battling depression & periodic homelessness.
In 2012, as Chairman of Virginia Father’s Day Initiatives, Antione coordinated the Housing Authorities across the state of Virginia to hold events to promote fathers reconnecting with their children.
Antione is a true trailblazer – a driven, results oriented expert in building community and interpersonal relationships. He is a now a widely recognized strategic advisor on the issue of homelessness & community engagement. Antione is a gifted social entrepreneur who brings passion, commitment, and a wealth of civic experience to VHF.
Realizing the enormity of the need, Antione reached out and enlisted the aid of additional support through churches, non-profits, consulting organizations and community volunteers to support his vision.
Together, they are poised to be groundbreaking change agents in Hampton Roads and beyond.
