The Coordinated Assessment Model (CAM) is a systematic approach to homelessness in Detroit, Highland Park and Hamtramck that focuses on aligning the needs of individuals and families experiencing homelessness or at imminent risk of becoming homeless to available shelter and housing resources.
The CAM’s vision is to orchestrate a community response that creates an accessible, efficient path to housing for households facing homelessness.
All referrals for assistance must come from CAM. Eligible households are those with incomes less than 50% area median family income.
