Want to Help the Homeless Thrive? Give Them Homes

| Posted 12.13.2012 | Canada Impact

There's a project called At Home/Chez Soi, run by the Mental Health Commission of Canada. The five-year project has housed about 1,000 homeless people with mental illness in cities across Canada since it began. At Home is based on the idea that people should receive housing first, instead of waiting until they're deemed ready to re-enter society. Researchers say many participants are thriving.
