This project looks at what organizations that provide temporary housing in Westman can do to make transitional housing safe, accessible, and comfortable for transgender people. Starting from anecdotal evidence that current housing options in Brandon, Manitoba appear to be unwelcoming for transgender people, the project seeks to determine what organizations are already doing and what are considered best practices. The findings will inform the policies and practices of YWCA Brandon, with whom the project has been planned, as well as housing organizations across Westman.
