The Housing and Homelessness 2017 Progress Report provides an update of the progress we have made to ensure every person in Chatham-Kent has an affordable, suitable, and adequate home - the foundation needed to secure employment, raise a family and build strong communities. Inside you will find local housing and homelessness statistics, program information and updates, along with personal stories about the impact our program delivery is making. We are proud of our accomplishments in 2017 and of the community partnerships we have developed to provide programs to help meet our community's unique housing and homelessness needs.

In 2017, Chatham-Kent implemented a Coordinated Entry & Access System to assess people's housing needs, prioritizes them and provide appropriate assistance. This system is accountable and effective at moving people out of homelessness.

A Coordinated Entry & Access System ensures:

  • Improved client access to programs and services
  • Prioritization of services for people based on severity of need
  • Long-term housing tenancy, stability and homeless prevention
  • Resources that are effective

Coordinated Access System Individuals are assessed, navigate, and then connected with supports based on acuity
