Financials and Annual Reports

“Since becoming operational in September 2013, we have helped nearly 86% of our families obtain housing in an average length of stay of 34 days. We provide aftercare case management to ensure that once a family is housed, that they remain housed.”

Who is counted as Homeless?

The intent is to identify those men, women and children who meet HUD’s definition of a
homeless person. This is limited to:

  • Those living in a publicly or privately operated shelter providing temporary living
  • Those persons whose primary nighttime residence is a public or private place not
    intended to be used as an accommodation for human beings, such as: a car, park,
    abandoned building or campground;
  • A person who is exiting from an institution, where he or she lived for 90 days or less,
    and who was otherwise homeless immediately prior to entering that institution;
  • (4) A person who is fleeing from a domestic violence situation;
  • A person who will lose their primary nighttime residence within 14 days, where no
    subsequent dwelling has been found and the individual lacks the resources to obtain
    permanent housing.

Who is not counted as homeless?

  • Persons residing in permanent supportive housing programs, such as rental
    assistance vouchers;
  • Persons living in emergency shelters and temporary housing that is not dedicated to
    serving the homeless, such as alcohol detox centers;
  • Individuals and families temporarily staying with family or friends due to the loss of
    their own housing or economic reasons (doubled up or sofa surfing).
  • Persons living in permanent housing with assistance from a government program.

The count is undertaken on a single day and night.
