É Uma Casa – Housing First in Portugal

Share this post

Housing is part of harm reduction, CRESCER's Housing First programme provides permanent, independent and individual housing for people who use drugs.

At É Uma Casa, Lisboa Housing First, tenants are generally chronically homeless, use drugs, and extremely vulnerable due to factors like social isolation. There is no requirement that tenants abstain from drug or alcohol use or that they are Portuguese nationals (or even have documented migrant status), and they can bring pets with them.

CRESCER provide tenants with harm reduction materials and information, and can refer and accompany them to other harm reduction, health and social services.
