The Southeastern Virginia Homeless Coalition (SVHC) is tasked with developing, sustaining and coordinating a comprehensive continuum of care of homeless services for the citizens of Southeastern Virginia. Utilizing federal, state, local and private resources, the SVHC strives to remove barriers while developing housing and implementing effective strategies to end homelessness. The SVHC has adopted the vision that homelessness will be rare, brief, and non-recurring.
Collectively, the SVHC includes more than 40 member agencies and individuals working to address homelessness across 1,700 square miles and six jurisdictions: Norfolk, Chesapeake, Suffolk, Franklin, Isle of Wight County, and Southampton County.
The Southeastern Virginia Homeless Coalition works to engage individuals, groups, and organizations throughout the community including faith partners and members of the private sector that provide services to persons experiencing homelessness or have an interest in the process. Persons who have experienced homelessness are also encouraged to attend meetings and join committees.
