Released in September 2012, At Home/Chez Soi Interim Report presents preliminary research findings to explore the impact the project had after one year on service use, housing outcomes and costs. The Interim Report shows that Housing First improves the lives of those who are homeless and have mental health issues and makes better use of public dollars, especially for those who have high health and social service use. It also shows that Housing First can be implemented across Canada through a cross-ministry approach that combines health, housing and social services with not-for-profit and private sector partnerships.
