For eleven years, Jelena has been wandering from a sublet room, to anti-squat houses and back to her old sublet address. In between, she tries to build a good life, despite high medical costs and long-term treatment with a psychologist (PsyQ) for PTSD. But: that good permanent living space, it just won't come. 

Hof Wonen cleared again for vacancy and tries to put Ben on the street without procedure!

Ben was made homeless by Hof Wonen on February 13 after an eviction. Because he had not followed the correct legal paths to take over the lease after the death of his sister, he had to be evicted from the house that had been in the family since 1986 by the police and bailiff. BPW The Hague took action to protect his right of residence together with Ben. Ben told his story at The Hague FM, questions were asked and on February 10 there was a solidarity action with handover of demands at the Hof Wonen head office in The Hague. Nevertheless, Hof Wonen decided to evict after broad social and political support, and Ben and his girlfriend have been homeless ever since.
