2016-2018 Red Deer’s System Framework for Housing and Supports

Red Deer’s System Framework for Housing and Supports is an evidence-based, integrated systems framework that facilitates the coordination of services to individuals and families experiencing homelessness to improve their housing stability outcomes. It is a person centered approach which emphasizes three characteristics. First, it aims to consider aspirations and capacities expressed by the client or those speaking on their behalf, rather than needs and deficiencies. Second, it attempts to include and mobilize the individual’s family and wider social network, as well as to use resources from mainstream services. And finally, it emphasizes providing the support required to the client to achieve goals, rather than limiting goals to what a particular service provider typically can manage.
