The HHUG Report Card was intended as a tool for education – to raise awareness of housing stability issues in our community. It is important to note, however, that what it measures is the CHANGE in the data obtained between the most current reporting year and the one prior, not the absolute state of housing and homelessness.
The Report Card and its grades measure CHANGE across a select and limited number of data points which are influenced by many players and factors, some of which play out at a local level and some of which play out at a provincial, national and even global level.
Comparing change is an opportunity to examine in what direction we are heading, what there is to celebrate and what more must be done.
With the completion of Ontario Trillium Foundation funding in 2013, funding constraints prevent us from creating further report cards. However, we are pleased that the Region of Waterloo, Social Planning, Policy and Program Administration is taking over the production of an annual data sheet.
