What is "Homelessness" and who does it concern?

Homelessness is a pressing issue within the European Union's Strategy for Social Protection and Inclusion. To effectively address homelessness, we must comprehend the underlying causes and the broader spectrum it encompasses.
FEANTSA (European Federation of Organisations Working with the Homeless) has developed a homelessness and housing exclusion typology known as ETHOS.
ETHOS categorizes homelessness based on three essential dimensions of "home":

  1. The physical dimension, which entails having a suitable dwelling or space owned solely by the individual and their family.
  2. The social dimension, which involves personal space and the ability to enjoy social relationships.
  3. The legal dimension, which relates to having legal ownership rights to a space.

This classification results in four primary differentiations: Street homelessness, Lack of housing, Precarious housing, and Inadequate housing, all indicating varying degrees of homelessness.

Consequently, the ETHOS typology classifies homeless individuals based on their living and housing conditions, further subdivided into 13 categories. This enables effective recording, mapping, monitoring, and evaluation of the homelessness phenomenon.
