Family Compass - the main need
In its 9 years of operation and continuous presence on the streets of Attica, Emfasis Foundation has continuously recorded and studied the needs and challenges of families experiencing extreme poverty.
Since 2013, all relief programs are the result of testimonies and systematic interviews of the service-users themselves regarding their immediate needs and priorities.
We found that:
More and more families are on the verge of eviction from the accommodation in which they live.
