Solutions to Homelessness: Vancouver Case Studies

This study seeks to build upon and extend our knowledge about innovative ways of assisting the homeless by identifying important locally derived solutions that may be replaceable on a broader scale and to document those features that pose problems for the sponsor or the tenants. It presents profiles of six projects developed and managed by three community-based organizations in Vancouver, British Columbia. The report is intended to serve two audiences: local organizations involved in providing housing for the homeless; and government policy makers responsible for this aspect of the housing problem. Information about the factors contributing to effective housing project will support and encourage other local innovations. The lessons learned from efforts to assist the homeless must inform future housing policy and program development.
