Context:Help on this term

Long term homelessness is likely to have a significant effect on the outcomes resulting from Supported Accommodation Assistance Program (SAAP) services. Working with clients who have been homeless for a long time may also have a negative impact on the resources of SAAP agencies.

A SAAP client should either be homeless or at imminent risk of becoming homeless, as defined by the SAAP Act. A person who requires the support of a SAAP worker to maintain their current housing situation is at imminent risk.
