The study was based on a qualitative method using interviews with the participants in the project. As a theoretical perspective and central concept I used "Social Exclusion", "Homelessness", "Holism" and the theories of Norbert Elias and Howard S Becker. The results of this essay show that the specific program has been of importance to its participant's lives although some gave it more credit than others.

For example two participants stated that the project made it easier for them to control their addiction problems. Another important finding was that the project had positive effects on the unemployment of the participants. (Less)
