What's New at Hands


Hands assists Laurentian with Poverty and Homelessness Research

Posted on: July 20th, 2011

This week Hands will be involved in supporting research being conducted by Laurentian University. Researchers with Laurentian are studying homelessness in North Bay with an emphasis on understanding issues related to transience and migration. The study Poverty, Homelessness and Migration in North Bay involves a count (or period-prevalence study) of persons who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. The purpose is to gain information that will lead to the development of policies and changes that will support people who are homeless, or at risk of being homeless, more effectively.

The results of the study will be posted in the Fall on the project website found at www.laurentian.ca
