Overview
Homelessness is a prevalent issue in the GTA, especially in the city of Scarborough. Whereby, the most recent Toronto Street Needs Assessment 2018 Report estimated that the total Homeless population in Toronto was upwards of 8,700 people. In addition, the City of Toronto’s Infrastructure and Service Improvement Plan for the Emergency Shelter System staff report for 2015 found that on any given night about 950 people maybe experiencing absolute homelessness in Scarborough. Meaning that many individuals who experience absolute homelessness, must face the difficult reality of living on the streets with no physical shelter of their own.

This project identifies an immediate gap in information being transmitted to police service members that are usually the first to respond to issues within the homeless community and maps out community organizations and resources in the target community of Scarborough. The project concludes that revision of the current database of agencies that could offer beneficial services to this marginalized group is essential, considering the COVID19 pandemic and all the invariable logistics and evolving services.

"[We] recognized an immediate gap in information being transmitted for police service members…and that a revision of their current database of agencies…is essential”
