In Richmond, VSH has long-standing relationships with homeless service providers and health providers in the Richmond community including the Richmond Behavioral Health Authority, The Daily Planet, Bon Secours, VCU Health Systems, the Veterans Administration, the Department of Social Services, CARITAS and other homeless service providers. These organizations are partners in providing services to VSH clients. VSH is a leading partner in a multi-sector collaborative within Richmond’s existing homeless service system – The Richmond Area Collaborative to End Chronic Homelessness (RACECH). Collaborative initiatives include: coordination of outreach and housing access efforts with the homeless population; collaboration with The Daily Planet for the physical/mental health and dental care needs of consumers; collaboration with the state’s SOAR program to educate consumers on SSI/SSDI benefits acquisition; staff participation in Continuum of Care planning; regular meetings with local and state psychiatric hospital discharge planners for referral purposes; and, using state wide peer groups to provide trainings regarding wellness and recovery for clients. Collaborative members meet regularly to reduce duplication of services, identify and target vulnerable individuals, and monitor progress toward ending street homelessness. These efforts ensure that limited resources are used most effectively to end homelessness for the most vulnerable. The VSH Housing Development team was the first in the nation to work with governmental entities across jurisdictions to create regionally financed housing developments to meet community needs in the Hampton Roads region. VSH was also the first permanent supportive housing developer to utilize collaborative funding from the counties of Chesterfield, Henrico, and the City of Richmond to develop the Studios at South Richmond.
