ASH Evaluation Project Shares Its Message

Ontario’s 45 Addiction Supportive Housing (ASH) programs were developed to provide housing and support for people with substance use issues who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. The ASH Evaluation Project—which is part of the Ontario DTFP projects—is designing an evaluation framework and assessing the preliminary outcomes of these programs.

David KellyThe ASH Project team met with stakeholders and decision-makers from Ontario and across Canada on March 7, 2013, at the Ontario DTFP Knowledge Exchange Event.

Project lead David Kelly (pictured right, speaking at the event) said early results suggest that individuals who participated in the ASH programs had fewer visits to the emergency department and connected more with primary care providers.
