In this one-hour webinar, Dr. Abe Oudshoorn will share findings from a research project titled “Making Permanent Supportive Housing Work for Vulnerable Populations”, a collaboration between Western University, CRHESI, and Indwell (Woodfield Gate site, London, Ontario). In the first phase of this study, researchers sought to understand how to create supportive housing to meet the needs of Canada’s most vulnerable people, particularly those experiencing chronic homelessness and health or mental health challenges. Their findings, now available in a best practice guideline, will assist current or potential supportive housing providers in overcoming the complexities of how to include health and social supports in affordable housing developments. Further, the findings speak to resident level outcomes, funding challenges, and integration within communities. If you are an affordable housing provider, a provider within the homeless-serving system, or considering providing affordable housing, tune in to see if integrating on-site supports will work for your project.
Additional report authors include Amy Van Berkum, Sean Hunter, Steven Rolfe, Carrie Anne Marshall, Natasha Thuemler, Miranda Crockett, Susana Caxaj, Jason Gilliland, Sarah McLean, & Deanna Befus
