In collaboration with the Zubietxe Foundation, in 2016 the Department of Employment, Social Inclusion and Equality of the Biscay Regional Council launched the ‘Habitat Bizkaia’ programme, based on the “Housing First” methodology, on a trial basis. The aim was to solve the problems associated with the homelessness of people in a situation of social exclusion, who are highly resistant to intervention and/or with repeated episodes of failure. Two years later, the process of evaluation of the pilot project was carried out, which will be presented to the public on the above date.
