The Challenge of “Living Together” – Youth in Housing and Community - CO-LOC Project Evaluation Report 2018-2019

The Bureau de Consultation Jeunesse (BCJ) piloted a project titled, The Challenges of Living Together: Youth in Housing and Community.
The objective of this 15-month project was to pilot an intervention model to try to increase the sense of belonging of young tenants in their buildings.
BCJ owns and manages three apartment buildings where young people aged 17 to 22 are temporarily housed and monitored because their physical, psychological or social integrity are threatened.
Through this project, the BCJ wished to explore the conditions that promote the development of young people at the level of their power to act as tenants and their involvement as actors of change in their community to improve their living conditions and thus prevent homelessness.
This project was funded by the Government of Canada's Homelessness Partnering Strategy’s Innovative Solutions to Homelessness program. The opinions and interpretations provided in the publication are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect those of the Government of Canada.
