Revealing Rich Data

Revealing Rich Data

Since the spring, the Addiction Supportive Housing (ASH) project team has continued to review information provided by Ontario’s ASH programs to identify emerging practices and standards. The ultimate goal is to help ensure that supportive housing services in Ontario are meeting the needs of individuals facing the challenges of addiction. Following the review, both key informant interviews and site visits will be conducted to obtain more detailed information.

The data collection pilot was completed in May 2012. Tools were subsequently modified to reflect the results of the pilot. All ASH programs have been asked to collect data from July to October 2012.

To gain a deeper understanding of the impact of Ontario’s ASH programs and the level of satisfaction among their clients, the ASH team is currently conducting focus groups across the province. To date, three focus groups have been held and eight additional sessions are currently in the planning stages. These focus groups will undoubtedly reveal rich data and information regarding ASH programs across Ontario.
