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
