racCONTAMI 2014

First Census of Homeless People in Rome

17 March 2014


Fondazione Rodolfo Debenedetti and the Municipality of Roma Capitale are organizing “racCONTAMI”, the first census of homeless people in Rome. The census will be held in March 2014.
The project aims at collecting information about the characteristics, the living status and the needs of homeless people. It will also show the dynamics leading to this extreme form of poverty and social exclusion. This information is essential to analyze the effectiveness of the policies implemented in Rome in the last years, to adapt the supply of services for homeless people and to define innovative interventions which could produce log-term effects and reduce homelessness rate.
The census will cover sheltered and unsheltered homeless, and it is scheduled on the following days:
Monday, 17th of March 2014, from 10.00 pm to 2.00 am;
- Tuesday, 18th of March 2014, from 7.00 pm to midnight;
- Wednesday, 19th of March 2014, from 7.00 pm to midnight.
Sheltered and unsheltered homeless people will be counted during the first night. Rough sleepers will be interviewed during the second night, and sheltered people during the third night.
We invite those who are interested in volunteering for the 2014 homeless census to fill the online form by the 4th of March. 
We ask all volunteers to attend the training offered prior to the count.
Those willing to take part to the project will be contacted after the closure of the registration for more information regarding the training and count.
