The Amsterdam Court of Audit has released an extensive evaluation report of the services offered to homeless people in Amsterdam. Though the number of homeless people in Amsterdam is growing, the offer of accommodation and services continues to be insufficient. On average, a homeless person has to wait one year before being accommodated. Additionally, over 1000 people have no right to accommodation or other services, because they have no mental health or addiction problems and are considered to be "self-reliant".

The Court of Audit concludes that services have improved over the last 2,5 years, but that homeless people still do not receive enough services and aftercare.
