At Home/Chez Soi
In 2008, the Government of Canada allocated $110 million to the MHCC to undertake a research demonstration project on mental health and homelessness. The result? At Home/Chez Soi, a four-year project in five cities that aimed to provide practical, meaningful support to Canadians experiencing homelessness and mental health problems.
At Home/Chez Soi, demonstrated and evaluated the effectiveness of the “Housing First” approach, where people are provided with a place to live and then receive recovery-oriented services and supports that best meet their individual needs.
