Members of our team have published a chapter on partnering with community organizations to improve services for those who are experiencing homelessness. The McGill University Social Development Research Group has partnered with the Old Brewery Mission (OBM) since 2011 to conduct research and improve services for the homeless.
Our team has just published an article on shelter use amongst men who are new to homelessness in later life. The article was based on our review of administrative data of the men’s shelter in Montreal, and adds to understandings of the phenomenon of new homelessness in late life.
Our team has just published the results of a comprehensive review of research on homelessness among older people between 1978 and 2014. In this paper we review ‘what is currently known’ in the field, including the estimated prevalence of homelessness among older people in Canada, pathways into homeless in late life, and differences that exist according to ‘race’, class, gender, ability, health status, and geography.
