This Is Not Home is a community-based, participatory research project that will document how low-barrier drop-ins improve access to safe, stable housing for women (cis and trans), two-spirit and gender-diverse persons.
The project brings together drop-ins across Canada: Sistering (Toronto ON), My Sister’s Place (London ON), Willow’s Place (Hamilton ON), West Central Women’s Resource Centre (Winnipeg MB), Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre (Vancouver BC) and Yukon Status of Women Council (Whitehorse YT).
The project is asking:
· What makes low-barrier gender-focused drop-ins accessible to the women and gender-diverse people who visit them?
· What barriers do drop-in members face in accessing other services, shelters, and housing?
· What are drop-in members’ experiences with homelessness?
· How can the low-barrier gender-focused drop-in model be used to develop appropriate, accessible housing that meets the needs of women, trans, and gender-diverse people facing homelessness?
