The intervention is targeting the less vulnerable young homeless people in Aarhus Municipality who are closer to permanent housing. The goal is for the young people to move away from hostels into their own accommodation, and for them to get closer to starting (or start) employment or education. At the same time, the goal is to increase the young people’s life skills - so that in the long term they will be able to achieve self-efficacy.

Outcome metrics

  • Housing situation: The young person has a stable housing situation. In practice, it is operationalized by making sure the young person does not use homeless shelters. 
  • Labor market situation: The young person becomes more attached to either education or the labor market. Employment is measured as the young person having been registered with an employment rate of at least 25% in the preceding 6-month period, and greater attachment to education is measured as enrolment and study activity in an SU-eligible (state education grant eligible) education
  • Self-efficacy: The young person experiences increased well-being, desire, and ability. Measured as progression in the young person's action plan in the municipality.
