In the following weeks we are going to publish short case studies to illustrate how the HomeLab pilots are working in practice. At this time, Romodrom provided as a short resume how one of their clients’ housing and employment situation was improved.
The client contacted the organisation for the first time at the beginning of the year 2017. He looked for an accommodation after his release from prison and expressed the will to find a job too. He also had to solve his debt situation.
Within a month after his release, the social workers succeeded to find him a place in the Hostel in K. (see picture). The principle of the stay in the hostel is an intensive cooperation with the social service focused on the stabilization of the client’s income. The client shall be able to pay himself for his living costs during the period of three months.
Romodrom’s partner in the field of employment is a logistic company Serena Logistic. The client was prepared for the job interview and thanks to his strong motivation and previous experience he obtained a well paid job as a driver. His income enables him to pay off the debts and cover the living costs.
As the client has a stable job he started to be able to look for a standard living. Social workers from Romdorom in cooperation with the client found a standard rental housing in Pardubice. The client moved there and is able to live an independent life.
