The Virginia Housing Alliance (VHA) is the result of a merger between the Virginia Coalition to End Homelessness (VCEH) and the Virginia Housing Coalition (VHC), two statewide advocacy and education nonprofit organizations. VHA will officially launch on January 1, 2016 with a mission of expanding affordable housing opportunities and ending homelessness throughout the Commonwealth through advocacy, education, and collaboration.
VHA’s focus areas are:
- Advocacy through developing and promoting a legislative and policy agenda that addresses State and Federal housing and homelessness issues.
- Education through Conferences, Learning Collaboratives, and the implementation of VA- HELP, a statewide training center.
- Resources and Program Support through news and research reports and direct technical assistance to organizations and communities.
