A longitudinal study of the health of vulnerably housed and homeless adults in Vancouver, Toronto, and Ottawa.
In 2010 and 2011, we’ll conduct follow-up interviews, to see how – and why – participants’ housing and health status have changed. This information will be useful to communities and decision-makers; our goal is to guide the development of effective programs and policies to prevent and end housing vulnerability and homelessness.
