Innovations in Housing Stability

ONPHA’s Innovations in Housing Stability project profiles eight unique initiatives that have helped diverse low- and moderate-income people find and keep a home that meets their needs – from Aboriginal families, seniors, and women leaving violence, to the previously homeless or those struggling with mental health or substance use issues. 

Browse the links below to find case studies, videos and supporting resources that demonstrate how innovation is helping people find and maintain safe, secure and affordable homes, and how these approaches can be adapted and applied in other communities.
