Foundation History

Robin Johnson (Founder/Director)

" El Ronies Transitional Housing is born out of a God-given vision to help women that are in desperate need. It also emanates from my own personal experiences. I'm so fortunate be able to impact the lives of others, all the while partnering with some of the most passionate and driven organizations in the Hampton roads area. Homelessness is not a lifestyle. It's a situation that can happen to anybody. It does not have to be your address."
