As part of the Province’s efforts to end homelessness, Ontario launched the Community Homelessness Prevention Initiative (CHPI). The CHPI program mandate is to assist service providers in addressing local priorities in order to better meet the needs of individuals and families who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless in their local communities.
Seventyeight Digital was charged with completing the strategic planning, technical architecture, user-interface design, programming and development of a custom application and data system used to administrate the CHPI program in Bruce County.
