The Homelessness Partnering Secretariat (HPS) developed several directives to assist communities with the shift to a Housing First framework. The first directive states that chronically and episodically homeless individuals should be prioritized to receive Housing First services. This resource is provided to equip you with the necessary information and skills to facilitate the screening and prioritization of homeless individuals into Housing First services. A range of tools were analysed. The Housing First Assessment Taskforce, created by the Canadian Observatory on Homelessness, concluded that the Vulnerability Assessment Tool was the best brief screening tool available that can assist with prioritization of clients for Housing First programs.
