The From Street To Home Association uses innovative practices to face the problem of homelessness. On the one hand we directly help families through a Housing First approach with intensive social work to resolve their immediate housing problems, on the other hand we initiate reforms of the discriminative social policies by developing model programs that provide housing. The association has started this work in 2012, it is registered officially in 2014.
In Hungary the From Street To Home Association is the first organization using the Housing First approach as a main intervention tool. Currently 14 flats are inhabited by former homeless people with the help of our association.
Within the framework of the project 20 families moved into flats. It is a life changing opportunity for them, they have got a chance to stabilize their life conditions. We also provide an innovative service for them to increase their employment potential. A self-help peer group is organized where the participants can share job-related information and support each other and they also have the opportunity to advertise their services online on our website.
