Care Team



Students who do not have a safe place to stay or food to eat may face challenges being successful in their studies. Through the Care Team, we strive to help them overcome these challenges and excel in the classroom.

Give to the Care Team

Please keep the Care Team Cupboard in mind this year while you are in the spirit of giving.  Any monetary donations to the Thomas Nelson Educational Foundation small or large, would be greatly appreciated to help continue our efforts on both the Hampton and Historic Triangle Campuses.  Just by donating $5 each pay period, that will total $120 for the year, and in turn that can then purchase 631 POUNDS of food at the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank.


During this unprecedented time please be patient as we work to respond to your request. Our email and call volume is very high so we appreciate your patience. We urge you to use the website and Navigate during this time.
