Newfoundland and Labrador Homelessness Data Coordination Project - Forging a Community of Practice - 2010/2011 Final Report

In partnership with the Newfoundland and Labrador Housing and Homelessness Network, Choices for Youth and the NL HIFIS representative, the Newfoundland and Labrador Statistics (NLSA) completed an 18-month Homelessness Data Development and Coordination Project under the Homelessness Knowledge Development Program. As per the recommendations of the 2008/2009 Data Development Project, objectives included building capacity for sustained, quality data collection and reporting processes to better equip participating Newfoundland and Labrador community groups as they respond to issues relating to the prevention and reduction of homelessness. Specifically, Newfoundland and Labrador Statistics Agency provided assistance to NL community groups and shelters interested in improving their data collection and records management procedures and helped create a standard set of non-identifiable variables/information coordinated between organizations. The primary goal of this project was to collectively develop and support strategies that introduce, adapt and apply standardized homelessness data coordination practices in the province.
