Ship for homeless people

New spaces for homeless people in Prague will be available – it will be nothing less then in a ship on the Vltava river. The reason to deal the problems with the homeless this way is simple: lodging-houses for the homeless are not welcome in the neighbourhoods, therefore it is hard to find a suitable place for them.

The ship on the Vltava river will accommodate about 250 people without home and should contain toilets, showers, a dining room and a store for clothes. In 28 cabins 14 rooms with 12 beds and 14 rooms with 6 beds will be created.

The costs of the ship could reach 21 million Czech crowns. Three thirds of the amount may come from a grant of the Ministry of labour and social affairs. When or where the first inhabitants of the ship will be boarding is not clear yet, according to the municipal authorities it should be as soon as possible.
