20,000 Homes Campaign

2018 Registry Week: April 16-20

A Home for Everyone is KeyApril 16 to 20, 2018 was Registry Week in Northumberland County. Social services staff from the County, community partners and volunteers were busy that week canvassing at locations throughout Northumberland’s urban, suburban and rural areas to gather person-specific data about individuals and families who are experiencing or are at risk of homelessness. Survey teams were at healthcare providers, community agencies and public spaces across our seven municipalities, speaking with community members and doing individual assessments of housing history, health and current levels of risk and need. This initiative contributes to the 20,000 Homes Campaign, a national movement to permanently house 20,000 of Canada’s most vulnerable people by July, 2020.

Although homelessness counts do not give a full picture of the extent of homelessness in a community, they do provide critical information on the scale and characteristics of the local homeless population, and how this population has changed over time. Information gathered during Registry Week is used to connect people experiencing homelessness with the right types of housing services and supports.
