    Abstract

    Guided by principles of community-based participatory research, this paper presents the methodological process of conducting a senior-focused community mapping workshop with Housing First service providers in Metro Vancouver, Canada. Research participants mapped community services and amenities available to support seniors in maintaining housing and identified barriers and facilitators for accessing Housing First services and supports. Community mapping is an interactive method that provided researchers and participants with visualization of how resources are distributed across municipal regions. Findings from the mapping workshop are rich as they captured participants’ diverse descriptions and understandings of resource differences between and within communities; and revealed issues of accessibility, availability, and navigation of services and resources. Implications of this research include the utility of using mapping methods to identify the accessibility and availability of senior-specific housing resources as well as system gaps and weaknesses to inform policy recommendations and changes in practice.
