The Housing First Europe Hub
A European Platform which aims to further develop and promote Housing First in Europe
The Housing First Europe Hub
The Housing First Europe Hub was established in 2016 by the Y-Foundation (Finland) and FEANTSA (the European Federation of National Organisations Working with Homeless People) along with more than 15 partners. Since then, the Hub has grown to include more than 45 organisations, cities, government ministries, housing providers and researchers from across Europe and beyond.
We work in partnership with our core and associate partners to promote Housing First as the first and central response to homelessness. The Hub’s mission is to end and prevent homelessness through a mindshift, leading to a systems’ change across Europe, based on Housing First through advocacy, training, practice, research, support and communication activities.
Housing First & System Change
Housing First is more than just an approach to help people experiencing homelessness, it is the key to unlocking broader systems’ change to prevent and end homelessness across Europe. Find out more about on the Knowledge & Capacity page and explore our latest Resources & Activities.
Ending homelessness is totally achievable if we grasp this opportunity to do things differently. People experiencing homelessness deserve nothing less.
We particularly encourage you to read our latest publications on these topics above, which offer practical and pragmatic guides to help you navigate your Housing First and Systems Change journey, no matter where you are starting from.
