Here are a few resources for your consideration:
1.) Access the Canadian Housing First Toolkit and see the section on implementation. I would also recommend the subsection on challenges and strategies related to implementation.
2.) Take a look at Chapters 6 & 7 in "Housing First: The Pathways Model to End Homelessness for People with Mental Illness and Addiction".
3.) Also, the book on Strengths-Based Case Management by Charlie Rapp and Rick Goscha has potentially helpful material.
I would suggest two things:
2.) Consult with Winnipeg Housing First providers by contacting Betty Edel - firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your question.
There may be several differences in the experience of homelessness among gay and heterosexual cisgender males. The first is pathways into homelessness. Gay cisgender males may experience familial rejection due their sexual orientation. They may also experience discrimination from landlords and employers due to their sexual orientation, which can impact their ability to attain housing and employment. Gay cisgender males may also encounter homophobia while in emergency shelters or in their housing. Due to this, gay cisgender males may not feel comfortable disclosing their sexual orientation in these spaces, which can add to their levels of stress. Check out this blog post for more information.
Great question! There are many steps to take when writing an evaluation report. The key is to be concise and to know your audience. This website has several resources available on how to best write evaluation reports.
Great question. I'm taking this answer from a blog post we wrote in 2017.
Generally, pilot projects are small introductory studies to learn about key factors associated with research topics like time, costs, and size. Before researchers are able to conduct larger and longer studies – such as demonstration projects – they benefit from information gathered during the pilot project phase. Pilot projects contain assessments that are designed by researchers to see if what works in theory actually works in practice, sort of like a test drive for new concepts and approaches.
So, the differences are pretty clear – pilot projects test the waters of new, yet-to-be tested topics while demonstration projects are larger, longer studies of topics that have already gone through an initial screening phase. The evaluation process attached to demonstration projects is another major distinction.
