Housing First and Women
2021-05-05 @ 9:30 am – 11:00 am
This webinar series is hosted by the Ontario Housing First Regional Network Community of Interest (OHFRN‐COI) and the Housing First Europe Hub (the Hub).
The OHFRN‐COI strives to assist communities across Ontario, Canada, to develop, evaluate, and improve Housing First (HF) programs based on the Pathways HF model tested, adapted, and shown to be effective in the Mental Health Commission of Canada’s At Home / Chez Soi Demonstration Project.
The Hub was established by the Y-Foundation (Finland) and FEANTSA (European Federation of National Organisations Working with Homeless People), along with more than 15 partners, creating a network of organisations, public authorities and foundations working to scale up HF programs in Europe.
The goal of webinar series is to bring together the international HF community, share evidence-based knowledge, experience and innovation, build capacity for HF programs, and promote high quality implementation of the HF model that includes both fidelity to and adaptation of the model.
This webinar series is for mental health and addictions stakeholders including practitioners, managers, program developers, and policy-makers involved in HF through the health and housing sectors.
This session will focus on HF and Women. Presenters will share their research and work on the pathways to Housing First for women, families/mothers experiencing homelessness, as well as domestic violence and HF.
