Building Stability: Summary Report
Our study aims to understand the outcomes and experiences associated with participation in the Transitions to Home (T2H) program in Hamilton, Ontario. Established in 2010, T2H helps men experiencing long-term shelter use and homelessness acquire and maintain safe, affordable and long-term housing in the community. T2H follows the Housing First model, an evidence-based approach to addressing homelessness. Researchers have suggested there is a need to understand the impacts of Housing First in different communities and populations. Our study was designed to respond to the need for a locally based evaluation of Housing First in Hamilton.
