The AMCS Project is a strategic plan and pioneering initiative that helps hundreds of people facing the problem of homelessness on a daily basis. The basic goal of AMCS is to address people’s basic needs such as food, clothing and access to medical supplies. Said needs are met by the “Meal Provision Centre”, the “Athens Market” and the “Social Pharmacy”. Moreover, the need for housing is covered by the provision of a temporary shelter to those whose conditions left them without a place to live. AMCS has also developed prevention policies in order to prevent the vulnerable population from becoming homeless. “Social Grocery” is a relief to many families that become members every six months, as it gives them the opportunity to obtain everyday goods for free. Apart from these programmes, street work is another action carried out by AMCS on a daily basis. Trained psychologists and social workers address the needs of homeless people living on the streets by approaching them and informing them about the organisation’s programmes.
