Supportive Housing for Homeless and Hard-to-House Seniors: An In-depth Case Study

The main objective of this study was to conduct an in-depth case review of Fairway Woods, a 32-apartment housing project providing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, support services for formerly homeless and hard-to-house seniors. This report describes the location, site and building of the housing project as well as the tenant profile and range of services provided. It also highlights the project's main success factors and the impact of Fairway Woods on tenants and neighbours. It concludes with practical advice for housing sponsors, architects and service providers who are envisioning a similar project. (Author)
