This infographic presents the findings from online surveys with transition house and multi-service agency staff. It is a phase 1 interim report of Building Supports: Housing Access for Immigrant and Refugee Women Leaving Violence.
Building Supports is a collaborative three-year community-based project co-led by BC Non-Profit Housing Association, BC Society of Transition Houses, and The FREDA Centre for Research on Violence Against Women and Children (School of Criminology, Simon Fraser University). The purpose of the project is to understand the barriers in accessing short- and long-term housing for immigrant and refugee women (IRW) leaving violent relationships, and to identify practices and policies that can facilitate the removal of barriers to safe, secure and affordable housing.
