Mission Statement

The mission of Virginia Supportive Housing is to provide housing and comprehensive support services to individuals and families who are homeless or have special needs in order to initiate and promote their transition from homelessness to greater personal independence.


Virginia Supportive Housing (VSH) is a not-for-profit homeless services provider and community development corporation that transforms lives, transforms communities & provides permanent solutions to homelessness. VSH's integrated approach of permanent housing and supportive services is the key to the agency's 90% success rate. The homeless and physically disabled individuals and families VSH serve represent the very lowest levels of income in the Commonwealth (at or less than 30% of the area's median income). VSH develops and manages properties specifically for use as permanent housing. VSH manages three housing access programs that provide homeless individuals and families with varying levels of supportive services in privately owned apartments or houses throughout the Greater Richmond area. The Shelter Plus Care program provides subsidies to private landlords for 130 households. A Place to Start (APTS) provides permanent housing and intensive supportive services to individuals experiencing chronic homelessness and serious mental illness. The Housing Resource Center provides housing location assistance to homeless individuals and families or those at risk of becoming homeless who need permanent housing. VSH Financial Foundations programs help low-income households build wealth through financial literacy classes, one-on-one budgeting, and a savings program called the Virginia Individual Development Account (VIDA). VIDA matches every $1 saved with $2 that can be used for down payment assistance toward homeownership, higher education, or business development. Financial Foundations also includes a homeownership component, which is a five year intensive program for homeless households or households at-risk of becoming homeless
