Homeless Services

Coordinated Assessment Model

The CAM process will direct households that are in need of homeless assistance to a common access point where they are assessed using a universal screening and subsequently, a common assessment tool. Based on the thorough assessment, a coordinated referral will be made to the most appropriate service provider in the Detroit Continuum of Care.

CAM aims to improve Detroit’s homeless system and effect:

  • Greater accessibility to programs for households in need of assistance

  • Better alignment of resources with community need

  • Reductions in homelessness

Households will also see better outcomes as it will no longer be left to chance that they are receiving the most appropriate services available given their needs.

Documentation Required

  • State issued identification for household members 18 years and older

  • Social Security card for all household members

  • Proof of household income (employment, SSI, SSDI, DHS, pension, etc.)

  • Verification of homelessness

  • Birth certificates for all members under the age of 18
