Indigenizing housing first: localized approaches to ending homelessness

SUMMARY OF RESEARCH

Building on in-depth interviews with Housing First programs across western Canada, and discussions with international partners, the report develops guidelines for organizations to adapt the Housing First approach, specifically for Indigenous people experiencing homelessness. It includes reflections from communities that have adapted Housing First, and outlines the successes of implementing the model.

The inclusion of a social enterprise can fundamentally shift how Housing First organizations take on aspects of housing and services that might otherwise be delivered by for-profit businesses and can also provide a revenue stream to underfunded agencies. These enterprises might include property management, moving services, furniture procurement, and repair of apartments.
