Development of a Coordinated Access Model for Homelessness and Housing Stability Services

York Region
Project status: complete

J Consulting Group and Vink Consulting worked with The Regional Municipality of York to develop a “made in York Region” model for coordinated access to homelessness and housing stability services. To inform the model, they conducted best practices research; a jurisdictional scan; an environmental scan of York Region’s current service system; a review of York Region program data and existing policies and procedures; and engaged over 100 stakeholders, including both system staff and clients. They worked closely with an Advisory committee to use the key findings from the research to develop a recommended model and implementation considerations which was then pilot tested in 2018.
