Interrupting Chronic Homelessness
On any given night, about 35,000 in Canada have no place to call home. Tragically, one in five of these people is young – between the ages of 16 and 24.
Homelessness happens when a city’s lack of affordable housing is compounded by issues such as poverty, and physical and mental illness.
Housing is essential, but it is not enough to end chronic homelessness. MAP scientists are developing and testing solutions to make it easier for people with inadequate housing to access health care and social support—and to maintain long-term housing.
