Holding On!: Supporting Successful Tenancies for the Hard to House
This report is focused on drawing attention to the emerging programmatic areas of eviction prevention, housing retention practices, and housing stabilization initiatives. We review practical programs undertaking this work. The experience of these programs has broad application for any group trying to keep people housed. The report and toolkit presented are intended to provide an important foundation for groups and organizations to consider as they move into this area. For those already undertaking eviction prevention, the current work may add to their toolkit. As well, the case studies and the identification of various programs operating in Canada are envisioned as promoting knowledge mobilization and network building among such groups by recognizing and drawing together the range of existing resources that are available.
