Housing First Guide Europe

European Observatory on Homelessness

The Housing First Guide Europe is an online resource about Housing First in Europe. It has been designed to explain what Housing First is and how it actually works in a range of European contexts. It sets out the core principles of Housing First and shows how these are implemented in different settings.

The Guide is the first European resource of its kind. As Housing First has taken off in Europe, a growing demand has emerged for knowledge and expertise. Until now, much of the available material has come from North America. There was a need for practical guidance bringing together existing knowledge and experience on doing Housing First in European contexts. That’s why we created this Guide. It complements similar manuals developed in the US (Tsemberis 2010) and Canada (Canadian Housing First Toolkit).

For more information and details, contact Samara Jones. Following up from the Guide, FEANTSA has launched the Housing First Europe Hub, with the support of Y Foundation.

The Guide was funded by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation within their social welfare programme.
