Summary of a study on homelessness among immigrant families
November 16, 2023
Researchers conducted a qualitative study to increase understanding of immigrant families experiencing homelessness to identify strategies that could help decrease the risk of homelessness among these families. The study explored pathways through which the immigrant families became homeless. It examined the families’ specific needs and risk factors. It also looked at potential strategies to reduce and prevent homelessness.
This research builds on our growing understanding of the Family Identity component of the Vanier Institute’s Family Diversities and Wellbeing Framework.
