Community needs and impacts study of Project Haven shelters: NH18-1/440-1994E-PDF

a report focused on shelters in aboriginal communities : final report for the Project Haven evaluation /

“The Project Haven Program, delivered by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) on behalf of Health and Welfare Canada, was developed as a component of the Federal government's interdepartmental Family Violence Initiatives which provided support to a national strategy against family violence. The priority of the program was to focus on the needs of those women currently underserved with this type of accommodation such as rural. Aboriginal, immigrant and physically- disabled women. The Project Haven Program provided capital funds in the form of non-repayable financing to non-profit community sponsor groups and First Nations to create emergency shelters for women and their children who experienced family violence. Mortgages were provided by CMHC and forgiven at a rate of one fifteenth of the mortgage per year over the fifteen year period, provided that the sponsor groups continued to operate the facility as a shelter under the terms of the mortgage agreement. As part of its responsibilities under the Federal Family Violence Initiatives, CMHC has undertaken an evaluation of the Project Haven Program. The overall evaluation included over a year of program monitoring (Client Information System), as well as surveys and qualitative research"--Executive summary, p. 1.
