Developing Appropriate Responses for Ending Homelessness
Identifying the homelessness situation in a targeted way is recognized as one of the best practices for addressing the homelessness problem. Knowing the changing number of homeless people as well as the changing characteristics of this population make it possible to develop appropriate responses. The results of the population count taken last spring and released this week are therefore of the utmost importance.
"These results show us that homelessness can strike at any age and has more than one face," explained Carl Bond, Director of Property Management at the SHDM and a member of the Board of Directors of the Mouvement pour mettre fin à l'itinérance à Montréal (MMFIM). "It is also clear that access to affordable housing is key to collectively addressing the homelessness situation and trying to put an end to it," he added.
Residential stability programs and the availability of safe, affordable housing are part of the SHDM's mission to meet the various housing needs of Montrealers. The data collected through the population count is extremely important to ensure that our projects for people who are—or at risk of becoming—homeless are as appropriate and relevant as possible.
