Housing First can end homelessness

In 2014, we started working with a group of adults who were chronically homeless and sleeping rough in the Hamilton central business district.

Today, most of the people who were in this group are no longer homeless. Word got around. The People’s Project, using Housing First, works.

Since then, we have supported many more single adults and families with children into homes of their choice.

For many of the people we work with, housing is just the beginning – it’s the start of something new. We continue to work alongside people to provide ongoing wraparound support to sustain their tenancy, access the services they need to improve their health and wellbeing, and reconnect with their community.
