Youth Aging Out of Care and Housing Insecurity in Treaty #3

Grand Council Treaty #3

April 2021 – July 2021

Project entails collaborating with Grand Council Treaty #3 to provide a reference resource to inform initiatives in Grand Council Treaty #3’s Housing Strategy that will address the housing challenges experienced by Anishinaabeg youth in Treaty #3. The Study identifies Indigenous methodologies targeting housing insecurity and healing; includes engagement with services providers, regional housing agencies, community task forces, community advocates, and Treaty #3 membership; identifies services currently available to youth aging out of care; analyzes the current service landscape to identify gaps that may lead to youth housing insecurity; and identifies barriers to housing for youth aging out of care.

A teenage boy sits on a couch with white sheets and a pillow. He is in a white room with picture frames and decorative wooden houses sitting on shelves. There is a window above the boy's head with a light brown wooden frame and shutters. The room is slightly dark with the only light coming from the window.
