"Homes4All – in Turin the right to housing is innovating" is an impact finance project promoted by the City of Turin in partnership with Homes4all srl Società Benefit, Brainscapital srl Società Benefit, Homers srl Società Benefit, Associazione ACMOS and the Chamber of Commerce of Turin.
The project equips the City with preventive action tools by intervening on the reduction of waiting times for public housing - mostly spent in situations of temporary accommodation paid the City -, expanding the private real estate offer at affordable costs - thanks the ability of private partners to mobilize vacant real estate assets - and by developing a global take-over system for the beneficiaries, in order to strengthen their ability to achieve a stable housing solution. The achievement of these objectives is the basis of the pay by result model according to which a result bonus is paid to the private provider, in this case Homes4All, against the savings generated for the PA.
Homes4All for the implementation of this project obtained a grant of up to € 1.6 million from the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, out of the Social Innovation Fund. This Fund, governed by the Prime Ministerial Decree of 21 December 2018, promotes innovative projects for the satisfaction of emerging social needs, with the involvement of actors and financing, including from the private sector, according to the impact finance scheme.
We want to enable social innovation processes to give a more effective response to the needs of citizens and more efficient with respect to the allocation and use of public resources.
The experimentation is divided into three phases of which the first, for the realization of the feasibility study, was carried out in 2020; the second, currently in progress, is aimed at experimenting with the model and, finally, the third at its replicability, once the second phase has been overcome and completed.
The project also focuses on the promotion of participatory, collaborative and inclusive mechanisms that find in the ecosystem of Torino Social Impact (the platform that brings together more than two hundred subjects that deal in various ways with social innovation and impact economy on the territory) the optimal context for its development
