The European End Street Homelessness Campaign developed following BSHF’s peer exchange to Los Angeles in August 2014. The exchange enabled homelessness practitioners from around the world to visit the 100,000 Homes Campaign, a 2013 World Habitat Awards winner.

Over four years that campaign mobilised 186 communities across the USA to house over 100,000 chronically homeless people. Following the peer exchange some participants were inspired to take action together in Europe with BSHF’s support.

Inspiration also came from the Y-Foundation, Finland, a 2014 World Habitat Awards winner. The organisation has been central to Finland’s efforts to eliminate long-term homelessness. As a provider of rental housing it has pioneered a Housing First approach, providing housing as a first step and then supporting people dealing with additional problems.
