Be Involved - Solving Homelessness Together in London


Counting Our Way Home London's 2018 Community Enumeration Event Results

Enumeration events are community events that engage Londoners to solve homelessness together.  Enumeration events assist the City of London, the Province of Ontario, the Government of Canada and the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness to have a stronger understanding of homelessness and are an essential part of our response to homelessness.

On April 24, 2018, 73 community volunteers and 20 team leaders from homeless serving agencies surveyed 406 individuals and families experiencing homelessness in 15 locations in London.

The results of the 2018 Enumeration Event are posted to the right of your screen.

Message from the London Housing Registry  

The London Housing Registry has closed its operations after 34 years of service to the community.

It is well documented that the housing market in the London and surrounding area has seen availability of units for rent at one of the lowest levels in the last 15 years. Combined with the increase in technology to access the housing market and availability of access to this information through the public libraries and local organizations has ultimately led to the decrease in our database of private landlords over the last few years. It is the Board’s belief that the Registry can be effectively managed by partner organizations in London and the resources could be better used within the community. The London Housing Registry has been honoured to provide the community with a service, connecting people in housing crisis with available housing and feel assured the City of London, the London Homeless Coalition, the Housing Access Centre and other agencies will continue to support and advocate for Londoners in need.

We’re also extremely proud of the work Shelley Milos has contributed to this end, having been with the organization since day one.  Her passion and dedication to assisting those in need over the last 34 years is truly inspiring and we wish her the best in all her future endeavours.  Lastly, we’d like to thank the countless volunteers who assisted in maintaining the database and placing some 25,000 clients in housing, as well as those who supported the London Housing Registry financially in order to provide this valuable service.  The London Housing Registry couldn’t have done it without you.
