The Canadian Model for Housing and Support for Veterans Experiencing Homelessness (Evaluation Project) was a two-year evaluation project from May 2012 to June 2014 funded through the federal Homelessness Partnering Strategy (HPS), with in-kind support from Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC), the City of London and the four housing with support sites. This participatory action research project developed and evaluated a model of housing and individualized programming to best meet the unique needs of CAF veterans experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness.
