De Rustplek (The Resting Place) helps the local church to assist people who find themselves in crisis situations by offering temporary shelter in private homes in the community.
A local church in Amersfoort, Netherlands identified a need in their community for people in crisis to find shelter. A number of host families volunteered to offer a room in their homes for a couple of weeks or months, giving social professionals in the community time to work with those in crisis to find a solution. This is a way for preventing escalating problems in families and to help individuals not to slip into homelessness.
