Governor McAuliffe Announces Virginia’s Significant Progress in Ending Veteran Homelessness

Today at the Virginia War Memorial, state and federal leaders convened to recognize community partners from Roanoke, Richmond, the Peninsula, and South Hampton Roads who participated in a 100 Day Challenge to tackle veteran homelessness in Virginia.
