The Data Behind the Best Decisions to End Homelessness

Through data driven decision making and collective impact, The Planning Council takes ending homelessness in our region very seriously.  As a long-time partner within the region’s Continuums of Cares (CoC) and the HMIS, we are at the forefront of efforts to prevent and end homelessness in the greater Hampton Roads region and beyond. And – it all begins with systematically and methodically collecting and interpreting data to develop sustainable solutions.

The Planning Council works closely with the Southeastern Virginia Homeless Coalition (SVHC) and the Greater Virginia Peninsula Homelessness Consortium (GVPHC) to help prevent homelessness and provide housing to those at risk of becoming homeless across Southeastern Virginia.

The reports provided below are prepared by The Planning Council on behalf of the GVPHC and SVHC, in our role as CoC Lead Agency.
