Virginia Coalition to End Homelessness

The Virginia Coalition to End Homelessness is the only statewide nonprofit organization unifying the interests of all concerned with homelessness to bring the most effective and cost-effective policies, systems, and services into practice across the Commonwealth.
Our major current initiatives are:

Ending homelessness among Virginia's Veterans by the end of 2015.

Building local capacity to improve the response to homelessness, including transitioning to permanent solutions to homelessness, such as permanent supportive housing and rapid re-housing.

Advocating for better policy and increased resources to address all homelessness.
Join VCEH in a pledge to end veteran homelessness by 2015. We can do it!




What's New

The State of Permanent Supportive Housing In Virginia, 2015
VCEH estimates that Virginia needs approximately 2,500 new permanent supportive housing units to meet the need of our most vulnerable individuals, families, and youth experiencing homelessness in our Communities.

VCEH and the Virginia Housing Coalition have begun a dialogue to explore the possibility of joining forces and becoming one organization. You can review the current Merger Framework here. Do you have questions and want more information about this process? Check out our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for more details.
