Virginia Housing Alliance VISTA – SJV
The Virginia Housing Alliance (VHA), state and national partners, and our service provider partners across Virginia are working to end homelessness through transitioning to evidence-based best practices and enhancing the homelessness response system to meet the needs of Virginia residents. This VISTA project provides the human capital necessary to support this transition to a sustainable and more effective system, while engaging VISTA Members in the causes and solutions to homelessness. VISTA Members are placed in communities across the state and provide key leadership, guidance, and direction to help VHA’s local partners achieve greater impact for their clients experiencing and at risk of homelessness. Specific project objectives are as follows: (1) Promote permanent housing focused solutions to ending homelessness; (2) Improve data quality and use in decision-making; (3) Build strategic partnerships that advance efforts to end homelessness; and (4) Engage in special initiatives to end veteran, chronic, and youth and family homelessness.
