Strategies for Engaging Youth Experiencing (or At Risk of) Homelessness in Rural Areas: Literature Review

This project was conducted in collaboration with the Community Resource Centre of North and Centre Wellington (CRC). Researchers designed and conducted a literature review to explore strategies or methods that can help identify, reach out to, and connect with youth who are experiencing (or are at risk of) homelessness in rural areas. The findings will inform the CRC's efforts to expand its outreach activities in rural Wellington County to provide support and services for youth who are experiencing or who are at risk of homelessness.

Wellington Guelph Hoarding Response Report

This project was conducted to gain a better understanding of how individuals who struggle with hoarding can be better supported by local services and organizations within the Wellington-Guelph area. The Research Shop at the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute led focus groups, online surveys and consultations, and identified several barriers to accessing supports and resources. The report and the accompanying infographic summarize these findings and the recommendations made to the Wellington Guelph Hoarding Response.
