Debate about housing approaches reflects conflicting strategies and points to the necessity of identifying effective and acceptable models. This paper describes a preliminary study in 2008 of the housing needs and preferences of five Aboriginal women involved with a drug treatment court, in order to explore their housing needs and preferences.
