Under One Roof: A Housing and Homelessness Plan

The District of Thunder Bay Social Services Administration Board approved Under One Roof: A Housing and Homelessness Plan in July, 2014. 

Under One Roof is a 10 year strategy that outlines the priorities for the DSSAB to ensure the provision of optimal service while meeting our program responsibilities as identified through the Housing Services Act. Under One Roof: A Housing and Homelessness Plan has been developed through extensive District wide community consultations with a broad range of stakeholders representing the interests of people who are at different stages along the housing continuum. The recommendations in this report are also supported by detailed data analysis of the key factors that impact the supply and demand for housing.

Under One Roof: A Housing and Homelessness Plan is a living document that will be reviewed every two years and updated accordingly as the needs of the community evolve over the next decade.

Under One Roof: A Housing and Homelessness Plan – 2016 Annual Update

TBDSSAB has created an Annual Progress Report in order to show the movement made toward the completion of the recommendations contained within the 10 Year Housing and Homelessness Strategy. The update shows the strong success that the TBDSSAB has had in working with individuals and families in securing affordable housing, and broadening our reach with landlords offering rent supplement units. TBDSSAB has also been successful in engaging community partners in providing support services and assistance to our tenants, including the location of services offered by Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) within our housing properties.

TBDSSAB continues to evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of our current programs, and have built-in evaluation components into new initiatives, both internally and with our funded Service Providers.
