The Experience of Peterborough Residents With the Peterborough Renovates Program and the Homeownership Assistance Loan Program
The following research paper investigates the effects of two of Peterborough City and County’s affordable housing programs: the Peterborough Renovates Program and the Homebuyer Assistance Loan Program. The goal of the research was to determine whether the programs were meeting their objectives, which were, primarily, positively impacting the quality of life of participants. Additional data about how participants heard about the program and whether they understood the terms of their loan were also collected. To determine whether the programs were meeting their goals both a quantitative and qualitative analyses were performed using data from a survey mailed to participants in both programs. The researchers found the programs do have a positive impact on self- reported quality of life of participants. However, future research into these phenomena is still needed in order to provide specific policy recommendations., By Laura Crump, Date of Project Submission: April 2016., Completed for: City of Peterborough, Housing; Supervising Professor: Roger Picton; Trent Community Research Centre Project Coordinator: Matthew Hayes, GEOG 3901H - Communinty Based Research

Understanding the Increase in Mental Health Calls to Peterborough Police Since 2010
By Scottie Jean Curran, Completed for: Peterborough Police Service; Supervising Professor: Sharon Beaucage-Johnson; Trent Community Research Centre, FRSC 4890Y -, In 2010 there was a spike in the calls that the Peterborough Police Service (PPS) received and classified as mental health related. There has not been a significant decline in mental health calls since this rise in 2010. To understand why there was an increase in calls, this project investigated how the PPS currently classify the calls they receive and changes that may have occurred in the system for classification around 2010. Fact-finding meetings were set up by the host agency (PPS) to answer these internal questions. Online literature reviews were done and fact finding meetings with mental health service providers were requested via email. This was to determine whether mental health issues increased in 2010, whether other services knew of changes in the Peterborough community around 2010, whether similar increases in demand were experienced by the Peterborough mental health services, and whether there was a change, reduction or disappearance of services provided prior to 2010.
