Social inclusion

Because psychological well-being is a right of every person!


Contributions elaborated by the Social Inclusion Area team or by collaborations with other realities involved in the processes of contrasting homelessness.

For the homeless, the street is a cage, the home is freedom

People homeless they live locked up in a plurality of cages, invisible but tangible, from which it seems impossible to get out. Guarantee him one property in which to live, following the Housing First model, is the most effective tool to give them back freedom and the dignity they deserve.

A house without steps

My granddaughters have a cloth hut. Inside there is a little bit of everything. The parents, me, the grandmother and all the people they are connected to put in there. The hut has windows and they choose when to lower or raise the blinds. The hut is there, in their room. Sometimes they play it, sometimes they prefer to stay elsewhere.

Of stigmas and stings


stigma (στίγμα) in Greek means sign, mark, sting.

And i brands they are the ones we often put on certain stories as well as on people. Especially if they have something that we fear may belong to us and from which we feel the urge to distance ourselves.

Of fathers and mothers, of sons and daughters

Get a father. Put a big heart in it, a diagnosis that weighs even just hearing about it, the voices and the alcohol. Add up a grief, then another loss, then one, two breakups, an escape and surrender. Add a son, then another and another. Put in it a woman who loses love, but who doesn't give up and doesn't step aside. Then put the fragmentation into it: people dispersing. A group that is disintegrating, a core that goes away.

left behind

I met Maria a few nights ago and reviewed Irina's story. Irina was one of my very first encounters in my road work. I had met her when she had just been out of work: she was a family assistant for an elderly man who had died a few days earlier. Since he was gone, she no longer had the right to sleep in his apartment.

Homeless youth: numbers, causes and Housing First as an answer

In most of Europe, 18-29 year old boys and girls account for 20-30% of homeless people. What are the causes that lead young people to find themselves in this condition? The intervention model “Housing First for Youth” seems to be an effective response which is increasingly being adopted by European countries!
