Homelessness 101

This glossary of terms sheds light on the acronyms and housing models that are common terminology in the homeless services industry.  The Commonwealth’s approach to homeless services has experienced a paradigm shift in the last decade.  Today’s regional systems are focused on housing the homeless as quickly as possible and providing the necessary supports to help the formerly homeless stabilize and remain housed.  Contact Hunter Snellings, Director of Programs, at 804-332-0560 to learn more about the housing first model of homeless services and how you can get involved in the effort to end homelessness in Virginia.
