Home for Good: Advancing Women’s Housing Through Systems Change
Research shows that finding safe and affordable housing keeps women from going back to abusive relationships, gives them a fighting chance at avoiding relapse into addictions, and provides their children with some sense of security.
This is where you come in. As a landlord, property manager, housing superintendent, or AirBnB host, you have the opportunity to provide safe, secure housing for women.
About Home for Good
Home for Good is a three-year Women and Gender Equality Canada (WAGE) funded partnership between Alice House, The Elizabeth Fry Society, The Marguerite Centre, and YWCA Halifax. It was formed to investigate the barriers women face when trying to access safe, secure, and affordable housing once they’ve left the transition and second-stage housing systems.
