In 2009 Community Action on Homelessness along with our partners successfully produced the first Report Card on Homelessness which was intended to raise public awareness on the issues related to homelessness and deliver a comprehensive set statistics that reflect the current facts on homelessness that are faced in our community. The 2010 Report Card on Homelessness is nearing completion this year we and highlight important supportive housing programs in our community as well update the community indicators for comparison.
The Report Card documents the current state of homelessness using indicators that monitor changes in homelessness, housing, and income. This enables us to identify pressure points in the system and develop proactive and responsive strategies. Statistics provided throughout the report card come from existing institutions like Statistics Canada, the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation, and Nova Scotia Department of Community Services.
