Homelessness Leadership Group

The Homelessness Leadership Group (HLG) was created to improve on planning for homelessness in Northumberland County. Leaders from homelessness support organizations come together to create a coordinated approach. 

One of the priorities this group is working on includes the enhancement of the Homelessness Coordinated Response Team (HCRT) to help improve the effectiveness of the County’s Coordinated Access System.  By supporting frontline workers, leaders will be able to share best practices across their respective organizations.

The Homelessness Leadership Group aligns with a range of strategic priorities across the homelessness sector and supports initiatives such as community safety and wellbeing.

The Homelessness Leadership Group takes a central role in the collection of data and ensures that plans are directly related to evidence and data available. 

The organizations that participate on the Homelessness Leadership Group are:
