The new approach of the Leger des Heils (Salvation Army) to activate the homeless is bearing fruit.

Activating them immediately upon arrival and offering a tailor-made route to help them as much as possible. That is the new approach of the homeless shelter in Eindhoven, and it works.

Studio040 took a look:
Since January, 348 people have been ‘taken off the streets’. Like Henk: a while ago he was wandering around, but now he is ‘chief of sandwiches’ at the central drop-in at the Leger des Heils on Visserstraat: “Six slices in the morning and four in the afternoon, that’s all they get” he says.
