Goal: Eliminate entries to homelessness among released inmates and youth who are in CFS, disengaging from school
The highest recorded number of unique clients was in January of 2020 with 67 who had been discharged from institutions.
The lowest numbers of unique clients were recorded in August 2021 and June 2022.
Understanding the Data:
People experiencing homelessness face increased risk of direct health impacts from weather and public health hazards as well as disruptions to community and public services. Risks are elevated by lack of access to things like safe shelter, seasonally appropriate clothing, nutritious food, or health care and infection prevention resources.
From the baseline year (Jan 1/2019 to Dec 31/2019) to Year One of the 5-Year plan, there was very little change in community members released from a Correctional facility, Child and Family Services or a Medical/Psychiatric treatment facility.
This information is very dependent upon community members disclosing their reason(s) for staying at a shelter and on staff recording this as the primary reason for service, and as such, the unique client count reported remains an underestimate.
A Stay is defined as a minimum 4 hour overnight stay between the hours of 7pm and 7am
