An evaluation of the Kwae Kii Win Centre alcohol management program, Thunder Bay, Ontario

This study served as both a pilot for a national CIHR-funded project (see below) and as a stand-alone commissioned valuation funded by Shelter House. A total of 18 participants in the Kwai Kii Win managed alcohol program (MAP) and 20 control participants in a nearby shelter were interviewed and gave consent to have their police and health records accessed for the project. The study sought to examine whether participation in the MAP was associated with improved health and well-being as well as reductions in police and emergency health service contacts.

Funding body: Shelter House, Thunder Bay
