Report on Homeless Families in Virginia.
Luongo, Gerardine M.; Zoller, Mary
This report provides policymakers and advocates with information about the problems homeless families face and outlines short- and long-term solutions. Initial sections provide facts on homelessness in Virginia, an introduction, and an overview. Subsequent sections explore: (1) identification of the homeless and their characteristics; (2) causes of homelessness; (3) Virginia's response to homelessness; and (4) future trends and issues. Appendices provide authorizations and appropriations for the McKinney Act by federal agency, the text of Virginia's Comprehensive Homeless Assistance Plan, background information on the State Housing Commission and its programs, and descriptions of McKinney Act programs for which Virginia receives funds. It is hoped that the report will help individuals identify programs and funding sources, develop plans to maximize resources, and create initiatives in the areas where they will have the greatest impact.
