There is a lack of safe, affordable housing in London. Securing housing as a youth during a time of transition, when they do not have the social skills or resources is a challenge. Being in a transitional supportive housing program receiving mental health services adds to the complexity.
This IDEAS team focused their project on the following aim; Two youth will transition to affordable ($500/month or less/person) and safe (secure setting) accommodation that is sustainable (relocation would be by choice) by April 01, 2019.
