Finding Home

The Finding Home report presents research findings that have been heavily informed by people with lived experience with homelessness and housing insecurity, local service providers, community organizations, as well as best practices in homelessness solutions in rural Canadian communities. It outlines several recommendations to advance community efforts toward a “made-in-Leamington” housing and homelessness solution.
