 SROI Analysis - Dedicated-Site Supportive Housing

This study explores the social return on investment (SROI) of operating dedicated-site supportive housing in B.C. Five dedicated-site supportive housing programs receiving investment from BC Housing were examined as case studies. They included: The Budzey Building, Vancouver; Cardington Apartments, Kelowna; The Kettle on Burrard, Vancouver; Queens Manor, Victoria; and Wesley Street, Nanaimo. These case studies illustrate the range of value created by supportive housing in B.C. and the social and economic value created by investing in dedicated-site supportive housing.
