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 referred examples and others. Arrels focuses its work specifically on the homeless people who sleep on the street.
