Abstract

This article presents a study of organizations serving people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless (PHRH) in Montreal, as well as the determinants of their inter-organizational relationships. The study shows that greater inter-organizational collaboration is needed, particularly within the network of health and social services (NHSS), to deal with the concomitant problems faced by PHRH. Among determinants that have an impact on the extent of inter-organizational relationships are the number of services offered, the appreciation of the relationships between organizations within the NHSS, and the ratio of Anglophones among the homeless and of individuals with gambling problems.
