Homeward


 

Governor Terry McAuliffe and Mayor Levar Stoney kicked off Homeward’s 11th annual summer point-in-time count to learn more about homelessness in the region and to leverage the success in functionally ending veteran homelessness to other populations of Virginians experiencing homelessness. The kick off was held at Home Again’s Men’s Emergency Shelter as single adults are the largest subpopulation of people experiencing homelessness in our community. Homeward has coordinated Greater Richmond's Point-in-Time (PIT) count since 1999. Since 2007,we have conducted both a summer and a winter count to better understand the changing nature of homelessness over time. 

Results from the surveys are aggregated and de-identified and used to inform service providers, funders, and community leaders of what is working to address the needs of homeless individuals and families. Data from the survey is also reported to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and to the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development to allow the region’s providers to apply for $6 million dollars in funding to provide emergency shelter and permanent housing programs for those experiencing homelessness. Annually, more than 3,000 men, women, and children are served by these programs.
