Through psychosocial support workshops and job-finding support workshops, the Invitation’s overall goal to “Contribute to the increase of social inclusion and integration into community life of vulnerable or socially sensitive groups, i.e. to reduce and prevent social exclusion” will be accomplished. Through psychosocial support workshops, homeless will have the opportunity to work on their strengths, traits, and qualities that they can use for community integration, acceptance of their circumstances, and realistic possibilities, while creating a personal plan for the realization of their goals and priorities, as well as on their general behavior. By educating the public, professionals, and decision-makers about the needs of those who live in extreme poverty, we will also have an impact on the increase in social inclusion and the prevention of homelessness. Additionally, we will advocate for the rights of those who are homeless, excluded from housing, and other socially sensitive groups by creating a video that we will disseminate at the national level.
