20,000 Homes Campaign

2018 Registry Week: April 16-20

A Home for Everyone is KeyApril 16 to 20, 2018 is Registry Week in Northumberland County. Social services staff from the County, community partners and volunteers will be canvassing 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 will be out at public spaces, healthcare providers, community agencies and events 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.


We are looking for volunteers to conduct the surveys, enter data, and to help host community events. Training will be provided. If you would like to get involved, please sign up to volunteer by April 8th, 2018.

The first Northumberland County Registry Week took place in 2016. From November 14 to 17, over 85 volunteers visited more than 40 locations throughout Northumberland, speaking with community members. Surveys were completed with 59 individuals and 17 families experiencing homelessness in our community.

The County and community partners have since been working to ensure a coordinated response to best assist those in need. The 2018 Registry Week is part of ongoing efforts to measure and assess progress towards the goal of ending chronic homelessness in Northumberland County.
