Specifically, its beneficiaries are: people who are visibly homeless, in dangerous accommodation, in temporary accommodation, in dormitories and hostels, in venues that exceed their legal capacity, under the threat of violence/eviction, as well as in unsuitable living conditions.
Emfasis operates in accordance with the innovative principles of Social Streetwork. This is a form of social support whereby the beneficiaries are approached in their own environment, without the prejudice and stereotypes of closed societies.
Emfasis works in the wider region of Attica, providing humanitarian, counselling and family support by experienced streetworkers (psychologists, sociologists, social workers, etc.) assisted by trained volunteers and two mobile support units. In cases of emergency, sudden adverse situations, and natural disasters, Emfasis will also intervene outside of Attica.
