By Ellen Smirl

This study evaluated The Madison, an 85 unit congregate housing apartment
located in Winnipeg Manitoba, using qualitative methods and a
cost-comparison to the findings of the At Home/Chez Soi Housing First
Study.

Given the persistent challenges of homelessness, it is worthwhile to
evaluate congregate housing models as one option in the continuum ofchoice
to address homelessness.

Findings of this study indicate that the Madison’s congregate model can
contribute to improved capacity building, quality of life, independence,
interdependence and community building for the residents of the Madison.
The report makes several recommendations for improvement.
The Madison is operated to Siloam Mission.

This research was peer reviewed by academic housing and homelessness
experts.
