Coordinated access to provide better outcomes

Coordinated access (CA) is a process through which individuals and families experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness are provided access to housing and support services. This is based on a standard set of procedures for client intake, assessment of need, and matching and referral to housing.

MMF Rapid Services coordinates and provides services through coordinated access to help provide better outcomes for our Red River Métis Citizens.

Canada's Reaching Home

The purpose of Reaching Home is to support Canadian communities in their efforts to prevent and reduce homelessness. This is accomplished by mobilizing partners at the federal, provincial/territorial and community levels. With the help of private and voluntary sectors, and other stakeholders, the goal is to address barriers to well-being faced by those who are homeless or at imminent risk of homelessness.

  • Reaching Home is a unique community-based program aimed at preventing and reducing homelessness.
  • It provides direct funding to communities across Canada to support their efforts in addressing local needs and specific homelessness priorities.
  • Reaching Home promotes building the capacity of communities through data collection, partnerships, practical and applied research, and innovative initiatives.
