Program presentation 2016
The Polish housing system does not offer special support to young adults
leaving foster care institutions
Young people can only apply for social rent after having reached the age of 18. Due to the housing deficit, there is a
three- to four-year gap between leaving an institution and finding a “roof over head”
There are
currently 26,000 children in specialized foster institutions
It is
crucial to prevent return
to the dysfunctional environment they came from and to avoid living in homeless shelters
complex special needs
, including educational, social and emotional deficiencies require a
longer period of assistance
before reaching full autonomy
Creating a
system of supportive housing
for young adults leaving social reintegration institutions and foster care programs

Providing access to decent, affordable housing,
enabling the beneficiaries to continue their studies or vocational training
under minimal specialist supervision

Adapting unused attic space
in a building located in Warsaw

Partnering with a local NGO
to take over the management of the flats and the social reintegration project for the residents after completion

Habitat Poland response
A recent report commissioned by Habitat Poland estimated
a housing deficit of between 600,000 and 1.5 million units

It is the
local government’s responsibility
to satisfy the collective needs of a community, including housing
Local governments are underresourced
to maintain or acquire housing, a major concern in bigger cities where there is a high
need for social housing
funding and technical assistance
to families living in temporary housing in Warsaw and Gliwice

Working with
single mothers, large families, and families with handicapped children

non-profit loans
technical assistance
to families who have been offered dilapidated social housing so they can
it and
move in by the deadline
defined by local authorities

Habitat Poland response
Poland faces
one of the biggest housing deficits
in Europe, with the ratio of
360 flats for 1,000 citizens

(Europe’s average is 460)
High costs
of property to buy or rent,
unaffordablility of mortgages
low salaries
have lead to
60% of the population’s housing needs being unmet
Limited social housing and rental market
does not allow for families to move and live independently
Researching the possibility to
create Social Rental Agency
to enable use of private property, a solution that has worked well in other European countries

Increase the accessibility
of social rental housing

Habitat Poland response
a working solution
– a system of supportive housing for vulnerable young adults
to replicate project
$100,000 - $150,000
for 2 years
Funders of the current project
ongoing program that operates on available funding
$2,500 - $10,000
per renovation
$300,000 for 3 years
to rent at least 30 flats and to
establish and test Social Rental Agency
Social housing
is often in
poor condition
; families have no means to bring it up to standard
The most common
waiting period for social housing
in Poland is
between 2 and 7
years; however, the situation where it
exceeds 10 years
is not uncommon
solution will be promoted by Habitat Poland
among donors, partners, and policymakers in hope of being replicated and scaled up in the future
To date, Habitat Poland has helped over
1,300 families
in need
More than
100 renovation and new build
Social Rental Agency
becoming one of the
instruments of housing policy
