Juha explains how Finland closed its hostels and worked on providing dedicated permanent homes for those homeless, how they developed and implemented a strategy to tackle homelessness, their Housing First programme that focuses on providing secure homes, and their focus on prevention – including in homelessness statistics not just those in shelters but also those couch surfers and ‘hidden homeless’.
This is a podcast of hope, a podcast that shows WE can end homelessness and what needs to be done. You can take action to call on the Irish Government to develop and implement a plan to end homelessness in Ireland by signing the Focus Ireland petition here: End Homelessness – Focus Ireland.
