With nearly three million homeless people living on the streets of European cities, street social workers struggle to find adequate answers to help the most excluded step up from their situation. Through a revolutionary process that bridges life on the streets with the traditional healthcare system, Emile is returning dignity and self-esteem to homeless people and facilitating their social and professional rehabilitation. Emilie has successfully created a network of “watchdogs” that act as an early warning system. Using hygiene as a stepping-stone, they are empowering the long-term homeless by helping them to take charge of their own bodies and lives. Emilie’s approach is gaining broad recognition across Europe and countries such as Finland and Switzerland are already looking to replicate her model.
