REACHING HOME

  • Twitter
AHANS is the community entity of the federal Reaching Home program for Halifax and rural Nova Scotia.
 

The Government of Canada announced in 2019 a strategy to reduce chronic homelessness by 50% over the next ten years.


Homelessness has an economic and social impact on every community in Canada. The Government of Canada is committed to helping those who are in need and believes that one homeless Canadian is one too many.

 

Communities participating in Reaching Home will work toward a 50% reduction in chronic homelessness over the next 10 years. Building on the successful adoption of Housing First as a best practice, the Government will work with communities to develop and deliver data-driven system plans with clear outcomes. This new outcomes-based approach will give communities greater flexibility to identify, test, and apply innovative solutions and evidence-based practices that achieve results for vulnerable Canadians.
