Caritas has launched a Housing Pilot Program

The Caritas Sofia Center for Mobile and Stationary Care in Bourgas has launched a Housing Pilot Program. The first actions under the program started 2017.

The program is focused on the long-term sustainable management of the problems of homeless people, helping them to overcome their vulnerable position and supporting them in settlement of their own home. These actions will lead to long-term reduction of vulnerability and poverty and will guarantee the process of people’s re-socialization.

Three homeless people were accommodated by the program in 2017. The Caritas team had worked with them following their individual plan. Two of these people started working and left their life on the streets, convinced that this time they would face the challenges and will start to live with dignity.
