Community Plan 2014-2019: Homelessness Partnering Strategy - Halifax Regional Municipality, Nova Scotia

It appears that current service delivery models are not effective at reducing shelter usage by this population. The experience of At Home/Chez Soi and similar programs in other jurisdictions demonstrates that the adoption of Housing First principles and practices offers the opportunity for better results.
