Housing Assessment Review Team

HART


 

About

The Housing Assessment Review Team (HART) helps people experiencing homelessness to access housing services.  It is a program designed to meet the needs of the most vulnerable first and help people access the most appropriate housing option faster by reducing the amount of time people spend moving from program to program before finding the right match.

 
 

How Does It Work?

HART operates under a decentralized model. This means that any member agency is an entry point into the process where an individual can complete the intake. This ‘any door is the right door’ process allows individuals to access HART at the agency that is most comfortable to them and or the most convenient to access.

Intakes along with their assessments are reviewed at bi-weekly HART meetings where representatives from each member agency attend. Clients are matched to programs based on available space, acuity (level of support needs), best fit and client choice. 

Due to the limited stock of supported housing options available, it may not be guaranteed that an individual is placed in housing right away, however once they are referred to a housing program they will be prioritized based on their vulnerability as units become available. In some cases supports and relationship building with housing program staff can begin before a permanent unit is secured.

 

Who are HART partners?

The following agencies are members of this current pilot phase of HART. If you are or someone you know is homeless or has a history of homelessness and may need or like to have supports with their housing, any of the members below can be contacted for an intake and assessment.

Assessment tools

The purpose of HART is to assess client need, determine acuity (level of housing supports needed) and triage referrals to appropriate programs with availability. The assessment tools used to determine need and acuity are called the Vi-SPDAT (Vulnerability Index Service Prioritization Decision Assistance Tool) and SPDAT (Service Prioritization Decision Assistance Tool).  These tools assess the level of support an individual will require to maintain their housing and are designed to determine the needs of the client in a consistent way.
