Affiliation project: beyond housing, social bonding
The Affiliation project was born in 2020. This cross-cutting project for the five Housing First projects in Brussels (Antonin Artaud CSM, Diogenes vzw, Straatverplegers, Samusocial Brussel and Smes) serves the tenants supported within each of these programmes to address the problems of loneliness and lack of well-being experienced by these people.

Modular housing : social inclusion and urban renewal
The Street Nurses' 'Module' project aims to rehouse and support formerly homeless people in a sustainable way in modular and movable accommodation.
Street Nurses NPO is appalled by the practices revealed in a number of media articles today concerning the financial management at Poverello. It is always difficult to believe that such practices exist within the anti-poverty sector, but if what has been revealed in the press is true, it goes against every practice of good governance and transparency that is adhered to and promoted today within organisations that appeal to the generosity of the public.
Press release: Cardboard and a sleepless night
With the image of a piece of cardboard as a 'mattress Badlük' and the launch of the first Brussels Sleep Out @Home, the NPO Street Nurses (Infirmiers de rue asbl) renews its campaign to make the Brussels public aware that homelessness can be solved. With more than 700 people sleeping on the streets of Brussels, the organisation wants to keep the whole of Brussels awake to put an end to homelessness together.
The meaning of prison is in its exit
Street nurses call for a prison system that leads to reintegration
From 19 November till 5 December 2021 will take place the National Days of Prison. A pluralistic group of associations and organizations instituted these days some years ago to inform and stimulate reflection about the prison situation in Belgium.
That situation is seriously worrying and was denounced especially by the Belgian Section of the International Observatory on Prisons: in addition to overpopulation and structural lack of staff, they now also suffer from all the problems caused by the Covid crisis.
