We said goodbye with the knowledge that the faces of the serious housing deprivation have changed in recent years. The collective returns often an idea by homeless – homeless people dressed in rags, rundown and settled on a bench with plastic bags in tow. But alongside the 20% so-called unmet chronic tied to drugs and alcohol, half the people accommodated in houses housing first has health issues (often not treated), 1 on 2 brings stories of fragility and removals from the family of origin or serious relationship problems. There are individual (54%) but there are also families (46%) that, in a welfare already full of answers related to the families but often fragmented, located in the House housing first a starting point where underwear, together with the multi-professional team, build a custom project stable and coordinated. Housing First is an answer to those who have lost their homes and lives in the street for years (65%) but it can be a preventive measure for those who live a House inadequate (5,6%) or for whom the House is going to lose it (29,4%)

We said goodbye with the knowledge that There is no turning back, the change has started, We will continue to move forward – as said Cristina Aboagye President FAS. PSD – building on the past, by their appeals and have a smile that brings happiness
