MSc MADE Thesis AMS Institute - Cohousing as an opportunity to increase the self-reliance of economic homeless people

MADE Student Project

Due to the tightness of the housing market, the number of economic homeless people in the Netherlands has increased significantly. According to the Wmo 2015, citizens are required first to solve their problems themselves or within their own network. Most economic homeless people do not have an informal social network and end up in a homeless shelter. In the homeless shelters, they become dependent on formal support organisations and are barely part of society. This study compares the homeless shelter with a potential alternative, such as cohousing, to increase the self reliance of economic homeless people.
