Emfasis

Emfasis Foundation is a non-profit organisation, founded to address the holistic needs of all vulnerable and socially excluded groups (homeless – rough sleepers, unemployed, people below the poverty line, people with problems of various kinds of addictions, street connected children etc.) living mainly in a street situation or impending homelessness as well as those who face serious survival problems.

Applying the principles of Street Work, Emfasis volunteers-street workers with daily presence on the streets of Athens, approach, support and relieve, providing social and family support and counseling. At the same time, and while building relationships with these people, a full care programme is designed to address their needs at individual level.
