This is a longitudinal study of formerly chronically homeless people who are residents in a supportive housing facility in inner Melbourne.
Australian Research Council (Linkage Grant)
The project will interview 40 residents twice over a 12 month period, analysing what factors enable people who have been chronically homeless to maintain their housing. This will provide vital information on the best ways to assist chronically homeless people to remain housed and to address their social exclusion. It will enable policy makers and service providers to identify appropriate housing configurations and to develop support programs that better assist the chronically homeless.
