Overcoming Barriers to Housing after Violence Project is a three-year, community-based project, focusing on reducing barriers to safe, secure, and affordable housing for women fleeing violence in BC. It will result in research on community needs and the implementation of community-specific solutions in 4 pilot sites across BC. As well, the project will work towards policy recommendations that alleviate barriers to women accessing appropriate housing.
This project is funded by Status of Women Canada. It launched in 2018 and will run to 2021. This project is in partnership with the BC Non-Profit Housing Association, The Cooperative Housing Federation of BC, and BC Housing and Vancity Community Foundation.
