The European End Street Homelessness Campaign was inspired by two World Habitat Award winners – The 100,000 Homes Campaign in the USA and the Y-Foundation in Finland. Both projects are successfully using Housing First to help thousands of people off the streets and into homes.
To bring together people working in homelessness in Europe, we organised peer exchanges to both projects. This was a chance for them to see for themselves the impact of Housing First. Following this the campaign was launched in 2015.
