Homeless people

Not having a home means…


  • Being forced to sleep on the street or in a shelter.
  • Living in a shack or in overcrowded flats.
  • Living in temporary institutions, like prisons or hospitals.
  • Suffering gender violence and being obliged to live in a women’s shelter.

As a partner of the European social organisations working for homeless people, we recognise a classification called ETHOS, which establishes the above-mentioned examples among others.

Arrels focuses its work specifically on the homeless people who sleep on the street.
