Veterans' Workgroup

The Veterans’ Workgroup provides a forum for discussion of issues and sharing of concerns and resources related to service provision and the implementation of regional services and resources to end veteran homelessness by the end of 2015.

For the purposes of this workgroup:

  • A Veteran is an individual who served for any length of time, with any branch of the U.S. Armed Forces, regardless of the discharge type.
  • An individual experiencing homelessness is a person living in a place not meant for human habitation, in emergency shelter, or in transitional housing.
  • A chronically homeless individual is someone who has experienced homelessness for a year or longer, or who has experienced at least four episodes of homelessness in the last three years and has a disability. If you are working with a VA eligible veteran, s/he does not need a disability.

The Greater Richmond CoC Veterans’ Workgroup is using the Housing Data Form to identify and track the number of veterans we have housed each month. Veteran Workgroup members - please submit the form each month by the 10th of the following month.
