PIIN Insights: Homelessness in Vancouver
Homelessness is a vast, complex problem in both Vancouver and throughout the world. There exists a multitude of inter-connecting factors that influence and lead individuals to homelessness. These factors also influence each other; any attempt to look for a single “one size fits all” solution to homeless will likely end in failure. As such, many different solutions and strategies for solving homelessness have been adopted throughout the world, with some seeing more success than others. Our research attempts to bring some order to this chaos, by taking a logical approach to categorizing these factors, and identifying solutions to determine what areas will likely yield the most impact in the fight against homelessness in Vancouver.
