A group committed to meeting weekly in 2008 to evaluate the current situation of homelessness in SW Virginia, and to see the conversation concerning the issues of homelessness and its precursor—poverty to be directed toward positive solutions, incorporating ideas, from all stakeholders—including the homeless themselves. It is also the common goal to dispel commonly held myths, misconceptions and idiosyncratic use of data.
