Je Eigen Stek is a consumer-run shelter for people who experience homelessness. It is a house that provides shelter for sixteen people. The goal of Je Eigen Stek is: To support each other on the road towards personal and social recovery and towards an independent life after Je Eigen Stek To increase the empowerment of the residents on their own life and environment To develop the concept of consumer-run shelter. Je Eigen Stek is since 2009 associated with the Wmo-werkplaats Amsterdam 1. This is a knowledge network where the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences works together with the municipality, Je Eigen Stek, and other professionals and contributes to the development of evidence-based practice and practice-based evidence. To contribute to a more recovery orientated approach within the organization HVO- Querido To promote consumer-run shelters in and outside the Netherlands Strength based character Why can this project be seen as strength based: what do you expect to offer the target group and what you expect from them? Je Eigen Stek offers a place where the residents have: the possibility to give direction to their own lives, instead of professionals deciding for them a place where they can experiment and practice with new roles responsibilities as individuals and as a group the time and ease to reflect on their situation hope for a house in the future. 1

Men and women from 23 years and who experience homelessness. Choice for target group Motivation for the choice There was a need for a place where people who experience homelessness can be free of paternalistic professionals. Some of them, because of the law and regulations, fall into a void. For that reason, the initiative group started their own shelter, for those who have the same experience. In return, they have to participate in the household and activities of the consumer-run shelter. Activities Actual activities the project consists off, what is it you do?

Make an explicit distinction between evaluation results and hearsay/feelings/opinions According to Boumans et al. (2012) 2, in general, the residents of a consumer-run shelter feel bonded with each other. They have to work and decide together and can receive mutual support. Because of this, they learn social skills. This occurs within an environment that provides ease and demands that the residents take responsibility for each other and the shelter. This results in getting appreciation, (re)discovering talents and competence and regaining their self-esteem. Dilemmas that come with consumer-run shelters are the suitability for residents with specific problems and sometimes the lack of incentives to stimulate the residents. Specific strength based success factors What strength based factors made the project successful (for example: to involve target group/ users in the project) Active participation of residents Tailored Support Network Cooperation and commitment of the municipality of Amsterdam, HVO-Querido and housing corporations. Room for improvement What would you do differently in the future, how would you improve the program? To move to another building that provides more privacy and where residents can be more involved in social activities with the perspective of a paid job. More focus on individual and social recovery of the residents. 2 Boumans, J., Muusse, C., Planije, M. & Tuynman, M. (2012). Nu leef je zelf.

5 Sustainability How can the project be sustained in the long run so others can implement or integrate the project in their organization or practice? Ongoing involvement and commitment of the residents of Je Eigen Stek Commitment of the municipality of Amsterdam Research
