Abstract: This article presents an evaluation study of a home for young adults who have lost their accommodation. Most of the home’s residents are found to have unstable biographies as to housing and education as well as a history of psychological problems and substance abuse. The programme is successful for those who have a daily structure, but fails those who do not, or with psychological problems or drug addiction. An integrated approach is recommended and the accessibility of services questioned.
