Street Nurses and psychiatric patients
One of our housed patients suffers from serious psychiatric problems. He has his own home, but the field team is nevertheless very worried about him. In fact, he does absolutely nothing to keep his place in order. He sleeps there and uses it as a safe place for his drug use.
Brussels Housing First is growing
In 2013 the first project of Housing First was set up in Brussels, inspired by American projects under that name. Today, almost 10 years later, more than 200 people in our capital city benefitted from this project. Thanks to support teams and their partners in the housing sector, they again found appropriate and affordable homes of their own. Brussels Housing First is growing. More and more new projects are being set up - and, of course, we strive to strengthen this development.

Heatwaves and homelessness: Sunstroke Alert!
Heat waves are back in Belgium and endanger homeless people. Because, contrary to general belief, life on the street during the summer is hardly more bearable than in winter.

Life on the street makes people sick
