Abstract

Journey to Social Inclusion (J2SI) is a pilot project designed to break the cycle of long-term homelessness. The evaluation uses a randomized controlled trial that tracks the outcomes of J2SI participants (Group J) and compares their outcomes with those of a comparison group (Group E) who are being supported by existing services. This is the first of four reports evaluating the J2SI program documents preliminary outcomes from the first 12 months. The report reveals the extent of the problems faced by those who are among the most disadvantaged in our society.
