Halfway house for disadvantaged youths has been built in the city of Pilsen

A centre in Czechia’s Pilsen will offer 18 to 26-year-olds private housing and access to social workers with the aim of facilitating their entry into adult life

The Czech City of Pilsen has built a halfway house for the Christian Aid Centre on Palackého 16. The purpose of this facility is to provide private housing for young people between the ages of 18-26. More importantly, this establishment will offer services that will equip them with all the tools they need to enter adult life.

Who can receive help?

The halfway house was built with the intention of helping a specific group of people. Taking this further, it was designed to house and help young adults who come from dysfunctional families or institutional care. In addition to this, people who are already homeless or do not have access to adequate social facilities can also receive shelter and aid.

It must be noted that disabled people as well as those who have severe mental or behavioural disorders are not eligible for this service. Furthermore, people with addictions to alcohol or illegal narcotic substances are also not permitted access to this facility.

What kind of help does the halfway house offer?

Thanks to the Christian Aid Centre, young adults will receive more than a roof. That is, they will also benefit from social worker mentoring who will teach them everything they need to know in terms of finding a job, managing their finances, understanding their rights and obligations, etc. In other words, they will be taught all that is essential for one’s entry into adult life.

The facilities of the halfway house have undergone a complete renovation with new rooms, bathrooms and kitchens being built. Moreover, new doors, floors, and windows have been fitted to provide heating and insulation.

Following its renovation, the apartment now has 11 rooms. 8 of which will be used for the centre’s clients while the other 3 will be a social room, meeting room, and office for social workers.

Ultimately, the main goal of this service is to prevent homelessness by putting a roof over the heads of young people whilst teaching them how to be self-sufficient. In this way, they will be able to enter adult life with all of the tools that they not only need but deserve.
