Title: Home is Where the Heart is and Right now that is Nowhere: An Examination of Hidden Homelessness Among Aboriginal People's in Prairies Cities
Author: Distasio, Jino; Sylvester, Gina; Mulligan, Susan
Abstract: This research examined hidden homelessness among Aboriginal persons in prairie cities. In particular, data were gathered in Winnipeg, Saskatoon and Regina that focused on better understanding the shelter circumstances of persons precariously housed in tenuous situations, including those who lived temporarily with friends or family or those who resided in any number of short-term accommodations such as shelters, rooming houses or hotels. This research sought to identify the characteristics and circumstances of the hidden homeless population, what factors have contributed to the phenomenon of hidden homelessness and what programs and services currently available to alleviate the problem.
