We are pleased to share our Housing First research report with you!

“I want to be part of the community, not stand out from it”: Lessons Learned Integrating Housing First into a Peer-Led Sex Work Organization (2017)

We are pleased to release a report on the experiences of those in our Housing First program at Peers. This report details some of the successes and barriers we have faced supporting current and former sex workers to obtain housing in this region drawing on principles of harm reduction and housing as a fundamental right.  Special thanks to Leah Shumka, Flora Pagan, Nadia Ouellet, Bruce Wallace, Bernie Pauly for authoring the report and the Capital Regional District and Government of Canada for providing financial support.
