Localized Approaches to Ending Homelessness: Indigenizing Housing First


This report serves as a general guide for implementing and delivering Housing First, particularly in Indigenous community contexts. The objective is to offer a framework that places community localizing efforts at the forefront to help ensure the best fit is achieved for launching Housing First. The work shared here was governed by a Council of Elders and local leaders, who helped develop this set of observations on why and how it is important to adapt and localize Housing First to the community context. Our lens of analysis is rooted within an Indigenous perspective that draws on local experiences within Manitoba.
