The CAM is a collaborative process implemented, organized and executed by different agencies and organizations focused on:
Greater accessibility for individuals and households in need of assistance
Standardized intakes and assessments
Increased collaborative community partnerships
Better alignment of resources with need
CAM governing bodies are comprised of representatives from those agencies and organizations, including State and Federal entities, service providers and community members. Participants share the responsibility of operating an effective coordinated entry system that is in compliance with requirements established by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.
CAM Connection is a monthly informational campaign designed to answer lingering questions, share and engage with our local community and partners in a clear, thoughtful way while providing a comprehensive view into Detroit's homeless response system.
CAM Referral Data
Between June 1 - 30, CAM matched 412 family, single adult and youth consumers to emergency shelter or a housing program.
Consumers presented at a CAM Access Point and met with a CAM Assessor and assessed by the VI-SPDAT to determine the most appropriate shelter and/or housing resource.
Based on availability, CAM Staff generated an 'outgoing referral', which indicates that a consumer was matched with an emergency shelter provider or to either Rapid Re-Housing (RRH) or Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) housing program.
The graph below breaks down the 412 consumers as Family, Single Adult or Unaccompanied Youth (18-24), and which resource they were matched to. ...
Note: RRH and PSH are the number of consumers assigned to a housing agency,
not the number of consumers actually housed.
