CAM

The Coordinated Assessment Model (CAM) is the Coordinated Entry System for Detroit, Hamtramck and Highland Park connecting people experiencing homelessness with access to shelter and housing resources as they are available. Any individual, youth, or family in need of a safe place to sleep for the night can contact CAM for assistance. CAM staff will work to understand each person's unique situation and find a safe place for them to go for the night. CAM also completes assessments with households that are experiencing homelessness to see if they may be eligible for housing resources. CAM makes referrals to permanent housing programs as they have openings, and prioritizes resources for the most vulnerable households.
