The Experience of Homelessness: An Ethnographic Perspective is a study that was undertaken in the summer of 2015 as a way of better understanding homelessness in Red Deer. The project used an ethnographic approach, meaning the researcher met with people experiencing homelessness to observe and tell their stories of everyday life from their point of view. 

Many people are being housed successfully in Red Deer, but there is still work to be done. This research can help make improvements to the housing and supports system, particularly for those people who have been experiencing homelessness for long periods of time.
