For 60 years Sininauhasäätiö has given thousands of homeless people a home. No matter of drug abuse, mental health problems, economic difficulties, or criminal history. People with a place to call their own have a significantly better chance to use their will and power to get their lives together.
Housing first – the key to support
Housing is just the beginning. It takes various kinds of support to enable a resident to live his life through the difficulties caused by long-term homelessness, to get a firm hold of meaningful and balanced day-to-day life. That is why Sininauhasäätiö is full of experts from various professional fields, to support people with diverse backgrounds.
Taking the humane side
We defend the rights of the people in a vulnerable position. The goal of Sininauhasäätiö is to lower the amount of homelessness, strengthen the drug and mental health services, and assist our clients towards being a part of society.
Our Christian core value is in our way of encountering our clients: we believe in human dignity and meeting people with respect. There is always hope when someone cares.
Finland is the only European country where homelessness is decreasing.
The reason is constant work and the notion that the home is a basic human right. Not something to be earned.
