Immigrant Women, Family Violence, and Pathways Out of Homelessness

This project was a multi-site study with research being conducted in collaboration with academic and community partners in Calgary, Winnipeg, and Halifax. We completed longitudinal qualitative interviews with immigrant women who had experienced family violence, as well as one-time qualitative interviews with service providers in related sectors. We explored a number of themes including housing, health, and service awareness and access.
