2023 Annual Awards Luncheon

Our 2023 awards ceremony in July once again highlighted affordable housing developers, advocates and homeless-service providers in the Commonwealth who are creating affordable housing and providing support and services to individuals and families who are facing housing insecurity and homelessness.

These individuals have made pioneering changes in housing development (and financing); lead on the front lines of service provision; and advocate for increased funding and other supportive policies that make it possible to house Virginia’s most vulnerable.
