The North East Local Health Integration Network is working to develop a housing plan for residents described as vulnerable.

That includes seniors, the homeless, and those with mental health and addiction issues.

The LHIN is working on their Innovative Housing and Health Strategy to address the needs, and work on a plan going forward.

They have identified housing as a social determinant of health, and are providing over 23-million dollars for assisted living and almost 3-million in mental health and addiction housing supports.
