Housing First, Women Second?
Ottawa – October 29, 2013: Homes for Women has released Housing First, Women Second? Gendering Housing First at the National Conference on Ending Homelessness in Ottawa. Concerned that in Budget 2013 the federal government committed almost $600 million – $119 million over 5 years – to programs on the Housing First model, and that there is a gender gap in research examining Housing First models, Homes for Women developed Housing First, Women Second? to help ensure that implementation of Housing First funding reduces the homelessness of women and girls.
