Abstract

This article presents the findings of a 'street to home' study in Parramatta, Sydney. The study utilised a case study methodology to capture both the process of rehousing and the participants' evaluation of the interventions that supported them to access and maintain housing. Five of the men in the study were rehoused via a Housing First model, and three received traditional homeless services. The men participated in interviews pre- and post-housing over an eighteen-month period. This article discusses the outcomes for the men, including improvements in health and wellbeing, and workforce and social participation. The article also discusses the role of engagement, ongoing support and housing models in rehousing and maintaining tenancies.
