Understanding the Demographics Composition of Homeless Individuals in Our Community

Here, we compare our local response data to understand the composition of the homeless individuals in our community to assess whether the programs within our system have biases towards specific groups based on race or ethnicity by looking at access and outcomes.

COVID-19 brought racial injustice and inequity into focus with people of color disproportionately affected. The Western Virginia Continuum of Care is committed to addressing unconscious biases, and obstacles that People of Color face, by collecting and analyzing data to ensure programs within our system have similar access and outcomes towards all those in need regardless of race or ethnicity.
