Findings about the target group 
youth homelessness in rural areas is an invisible phenomenon, no data concerning the quantitative dimension exists 
multiple problems underlie housing insecurity, permanent conflicts with parents / partners as main triggers 
clients and support system do not match!

Findings about the target group 
everyday life 
family/ friends 
range of movement 
5 kilometres 
changing housing situations in a small radius 
clients often search for private solutions beyond the institutional support system, especially with the help of friends and family

Findings about the help system 
wide range of community facilities and social institutions in most rural parts of NRW as well 
no specific support system for the target group 
surrounding support system (e.g. Debtor Consulting Agency, Counselling Centre for Drug Addicts) is overstrained with youth homelessness

Findings about the help system 
“marshalling-yard”: shifting the responsibility for young homeless people in rural areas 
on average 8 „false helps“ are necessary to get the „right help“ in the Housing Emergency Support
approach 1: 
Preventing youth homelessness in rural areas needs all local expertise and personal resources!

Results of WohnPerspektiven 
general: 
networking is the missing link between clients and support system 
dialogue between the different stakeholders of social welfare has to become a routine 
benefit: less excessive demand and acceptable solutions

We achieved a lot.. 
Results and findings of WohnPerpektiven were transferred across the state and to stakeholders. 
In some regions the co-operative model of preventing youth homelessness is working steadily. 
North Rhine-Westfalia is still operating its yearly statistics on homelessness and focuses regularly on youth homelessness. 
The state department for social welfare organizes dialogues between stakeholders of the homeless and the youth welfare services to find a connecting model for the prevention of homelessness and the support for young homeless people beyond local arrangements. Open end!

Alexander Sbosny 
But… 
There is no systematic funding or claiming of prevention networks for young homeless people. 
Local solutions depend on traditions, connections and political opinions. 
Young homeless men and women are a target group with only a small lobby especially in rural areas.

Preventing Rural Youth Homelessness

  • 1. Preventing youth homelessness in rural areas The case of North Rine-Westfalia Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny
  • 2. The state programme in NRW Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny established in 1996 to support communities and non-communal institutions of the welfare sector (co-payment 20%) exemplary instead of structural funding with a focus on the prevention of homelessness (total volume per year ~ 1.1 million €) premises: innovation, orientation on social environment, transferability (funding period max. 3 years)
  • 3. Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny The project WohnPerspektiven duration: 02/2010 - 02/2013 target group: young homeless people and those threatened with homelessness (aged between 15-27) aims: survey youth homelessness in 3 rural areas, develop and test different kinds of help resources: additional employees for the participating institutions, project management, scientific supervision and evaluation
  • 4. Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny The project WohnPerspektiven survey interviews with key players of the support system and homeless people to learn about youth homelessness conferences to activate the dialogue between the different institutions of the support system public relations
  • 5. Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny Findings about the target group youth homelessness in rural areas is an invisible phenomenon, no data concerning the quantitative dimension exists multiple problems underlie housing insecurity, permanent conflicts with parents / partners as main triggers clients and support system do not match!
  • 6. Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny Findings about the target group everyday life family/ friends range of movement 5 kilometres changing housing situations in a small radius clients often search for private solutions beyond the institutional support system, especially with the help of friends and family
  • 7. Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny Findings about the help system wide range of community facilities and social institutions in most rural parts of NRW as well no specific support system for the target group surrounding support system (e.g. Debtor Consulting Agency, Counselling Centre for Drug Addicts) is overstrained with youth homelessness
  • 8. Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny Findings about the help system “marshalling-yard”: shifting the responsibility for young homeless people in rural areas on average 8 „false helps“ are necessary to get the „right help“ in the Housing Emergency Support
  • 9. approach 1: Preventing youth homelessness in rural areas needs all local expertise and personal resources! instrument: navigation aid Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny Results of WohnPerspektiven
  • 10.

  • 11. Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny Results of WohnPerspektiven approach 3: Preventing youth homelessness in rural areas needs a dialogue between the Housing Emergency Support and the Educational System! instruments: study guide and collaborative teaching units
  • 12. Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny Results of WohnPerspektiven general: networking is the missing link between clients and support system dialogue between the different stakeholders of social welfare has to become a routine benefit: less excessive demand and acceptable solutions
  • 13. Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny We achieved a lot.. Results and findings of WohnPerpektiven were transferred across the state and to stakeholders. In some regions the co-operative model of preventing youth homelessness is working steadily. North Rhine-Westfalia is still operating its yearly statistics on homelessness and focuses regularly on youth homelessness. The state department for social welfare organizes dialogues between stakeholders of the homeless and the youth welfare services to find a connecting model for the prevention of homelessness and the support for young homeless people beyond local arrangements. Open end!
  • 14. Investing in young people to prevent a lost generation in Europe: key policy and practice in addressing youth homelessness 8th November 2013, Prague, Czech Republic Alexander Sbosny But… There is no systematic funding or claiming of prevention networks for young homeless people. Local solutions depend on traditions, connections and political opinions. Young homeless men and women are a target group with only a small lobby especially in rural areas.
