The Alberta Centre for Child, Family and Community Research (the Centre), was established to support and disseminate research knowledge and evidence on policy issues related to improving the well being and health of children. The Centre is seen as an innovative leader in the development and dissemination of policy relevant evidence.
The Research Committee of the Interagency Council on Homelessness wanted to identify relevant literature to inform their work. The Centre provided assistance in identifying the literature on community inclusion frameworks for including vulnerable populations in housing discussions and/or consultations. Additionally literature on strategies to combat Not in My Back Yard attitudes with respect to social housing projects was also identified.
