“Flat Zero helped to open my eyes”

Flat Zero is a low-threshold night shelter that offers a secure and welcoming space for ten people. Since February we have provided 170 nights of accommodation to some thirty people known to us at Arrels. They are people who have been living on the streets for a long time, who are in highly vulnerable situations, and who have been unable to find a place in any other resource. Flat Zero is able to open its doors every day thanks to a team of concierges and some 25 volunteers. One of these people is Paula Huguet, who we interviewed here.

Proposals to make #nobodysleepingonthestreet possible

The information we obtained from the interviews with people sleeping on the streets in Barcelona should be used to review and improve resources, challenge policies and procedures that already exist and to promote new, useful courses of action aimed at addressing the realities of people who are sleeping on the street. At Arrels we have already started our work and have prepared a series of proposals in the context of the city.

Most of the people who read this have a key near them, that if forgotten somewhere would generate discomfort. We cannot imagine what it means to end the day and not have this key that opens the door to our home and our personal or family intimacy. This daily action is an unreachable challenge for over 941 people who sleep every night on the street of Barcelona. But the option of having a key is possible if we add an indispensable ingredient: the citizen’s will.
