Social Housing

In 2004 Fondazione Cariplo created the Fondazione Housing Sociale (FHS), a foundation dedicated to the development and experimentation of innovative solutions for structuring, financing, constructing and managing social housing initiatives that are economically sustainable and not dependent on grants.

FHS works on the strong philosophy that social housing is not simply about the provision of a place to live but rather about a way of living, in which multiple services are available and a community is built.

Currently there are 27 approved local funds spread throughout Italy and there are approximately 220 projects, 14,800 dwellings and 6,500 beds in temporary or student residences. The fund has in its sights the construction total of about 20,000 apartments.
