State-NewsRICHMOND, Va. (AP) _ Community leaders from across Virginia are being honored for tackling the issue of homelessness among veterans. The leaders being recognized Thursday participated in the 100 Day Challenge, which was aimed at getting veterans off the streets and into permanent housing. At the conclusion of the challenge, 462 veterans had made the transition. They were among 620 homeless veterans who were counted in January 2014. Gov. Terry McAuliffe is scheduled to address the community leaders from Richmond, Roanoke, south Hampton Roads and the state’s Tidewater region. The recognition ceremony will be held at the Virginia War Memorial in Richmond. A personal testimony from a once-homeless vet is also part of the program.
