What is the purpose of the walk-in consultation hour?
The walk-in consultation hour for homeless people gives us the chance to look at someone's personal circumstances during a brief screening. Does this person have a connection with the region or are they eligible for social welfare benefits? And can this person stay with friends or family (with assistance from WIJeindhoven) or is emergency shelter the only solution at that moment?
After this initial screening, there will be an intake interview at Central Registration as soon as possible.
What happens at Central Registration?
A more extensive screening will be carried out at Central Registration. Staff there will consider the extent to which someone is able to function on their own. Determining factors here are daily structure, work and income, mental and physical health and social contacts.
This intake interview forms the basis for a coaching programme. In this programme, we work with the client towards the best possible independence and reintegration into society, preferably by way of paid employment.
What happens in a crisis situation?
Some situations require immediate help. Emergency and crisis beds are available for such situations.
In the case of an emergency bed, Central Registration will organise a place to sleep, a meal and use of shower facilities. In the case of a crisis bed, we go further than just organising basic needs, and allocate a personal coach to the client.
In cases of domestic violence, Central Registration always offers safe shelter (Veilig Thuis Zuidoost-Brabant).
