Evaluation of Homelessness Initiatives: Pauline’s Place, Vincent Place and Mobile Support Worker Program


This evaluation of Sault Ste. Marie’s homelessness initiatives was designed and executed with the goal of bettering the services provided to community members under precarious living conditions.  A continuum of care model was used to identify gaps in the delivery of community services to address both crisis and long-term needs of homeless individuals.  Recommendations included consistent data collection that reflects service goals and objectives; the establishment of a street-level service outreach; the expansion of the Mobile Support Worker program; the development of more affordable housing; and permanent, ongoing funding to homeless shelters, amongst others.  This research provided a glimpse of the strong network of agencies within the City of Sault Ste. Marie which provide support to the homeless population.
