CCBR typically has 12-15 ongoing projects and has completed over 400 projects since 1982. Each project is guided by our commitment to impacting social change in practical and powerful ways. We conduct research with people not on people, cultivating respect with communities at every step of the process.
Projects can be searched for using words from the project title or using the service area, theme, or date range for the project. You can also type 'Service Area' or 'Theme' into the search bar to get a list of options in each of these fields.
The purpose of this project was to design and conduct a developmental evaluation of an innovative inter-agency collaborative that developed and tested an integrated system of support for people with developmental disabilities/dual diagnosis (DD/DD) accessing homeless shelters. This project was an innovative inter-agency intervention in that it will change the way shelter services screen clients for developmental disabilities; fast track people who need DD/DD supports and assessments; facilitate new pathways of care with community organizations that offer specialized supports; fill a gap in data of people using shelters that are also living with DD/DD; inform best practices that can later be replicated in shelters across Canada, and; increase sustainable housing arrangements for people living with DD/DD. The evaluation was funded by Ontario Local Poverty Reduction Fund via Community Living Brampton Caledon.
