Financial Inclusion for Homeless Persons and Those at Risk
Deficits in appropriate and affordable housing may also interact with other forms of exclusion, creating cycles of increased exclusion and risk. In the current study, we consider the interaction between homelessness and access to mainstream financial services. The conceptual model proposes that, without a stable address access to mainstream financial services in Canada is difficult if not impossible. Furthermore, without mainstream financial services, the ability to effectively manage financial resources and acquire new ones is likely to be impaired.
