Homeward Trust Edmonton Reports

From Homeward Trust

Together with our partners at the Centre for Public Legal Education Alberta and the University of Alberta Faculty of Extension, Homeward Trust is pleased to announce the release of two reports that highlight the roles that housing providers can play in supporting families affected by domestic violence:

Domestic Violence: Roles of Landlords and Property Managers is a report on research conducted by the Centre for Public Legal Education Alberta and the Faculty of Extension, University of Alberta.  The report explores the key roles that front line staff currently play, and what they need to be even more effective. It was funded by the Government of Canada’s Homelessness Partnering Strategy through Homeward Trust’s Community Research Projects funding program. This report is available at http://www.cplea.ca/research/

Homeward Trust Domestic Violence Forum 2016 Final report captures the robust discussion prompted by the remarks by Ms. Helevuo-Burnet, Senior Business Partner (Domestic Abuse) with Peabody UK, at the Homeward Trust Domestic Violence and Housing Forum held in Edmonton in October 2016. Landlords, property managers, and domestic violence service providers urged better communication and more training resources to assist front line staff in helping their tenants.
