New Report--Implementing Housing First--Lessons from Toronto, Centre for Research on Inner City Health

The Centre for Research on Inner City Health (CRICH) at St. Michael’s Hospital was responsible for leading the Toronto arm of the five-city At Home/Chez Soi randomized controlled trial of Housing First (HF).

HF programs offer people experiencing homelessness and mental health problems access to independent housing and supports.

Our new report highlights findings from several scientific publications related to the implementation process, and explores:

  • Key aspects of the HF model
  • Adaptations applied in Toronto
  • Needed enhancements
