Data That Makes A Difference: Who to House in Housing First

Watch Now

The Pathways Housing First model was introduced to provide access to housing for chronically homeless individuals with psychiatric disabilities and/or substance use disorders. A “drift” toward serving a broader population has characterized many programs with the result that the evidence gleaned from the success of the Pathways model is increasingly strained when used to suggest similar rates of success can be expected for these more broadly defined programs.

In this presentation we describe the characteristics of clients who experience success in a large Housing First program implemented in a non-experimental setting in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. We discuss the implications of these success rates for the size of cost-savings to the justice and health care systems and for meeting targets for reducing chronic homelessness.
