Outputs from the Rapid Re-Housing Pilot Testing project for families with children (Rapid Re-Housing)

Glumbíková, K., Vávrová, S., Gřundělová, B., Mikulec, M. a Stanková, Z. Qualitative analysis of the desirable future and related sources of hope for the homeless shelter residents in the Czech Republic. 2018.

The result was achieved through a qualitative research strategy, specifically through 32 in-depth repeated interviews with residents and residents of shelters. The communication partners were selected through intentional selection through the institution (shelters in the Czech Republic). The interviews were conducted using the techniques of life trajectories and lines of life. The data was processed using the latest approaches to grounded theory by K. Charmaz and A. Clarke. The result obtained consists of a concrete description of the used methodology, the analysis of the individual categories created within the research: hope, hopelessness, orientation to the past, orientation to the future, inner and outer resources of hope, life axis trajectory and individual planning in shelters. As part of the output, we pay special attention to gender specifics in the obtained data. The output also includes a description of the life trajectories in specific areas for each communication partner.

Gojová, A., Glumbíková, K., Kučera, P., Lesák, V. a Ripka, Š. Unified methodology of monitoring and evaluation of local social housing systems. 2018.

The aim of the Unified Methodology of monitoring and evaluation of interventions at municipal level is the creation of a tool for uniform monitoring and evaluation of the results of municipal projects and data collection for evaluation of impacts of the MoLSA project in municipalities. A unified methodology for monitoring and evaluating community-level interventions includes elaborated research tools, frequency of data collection, recording and data processing and the compatibility of data collection with the legal environment.

Černý, J., Szotáková, M. Analysis of the drug scene in Ostrava. Final report, 2015.

The drug situation in Ostrava is affected by both regional and national and international trends. In this analysis we first present a wider context that has an impact on the drug situation in Ostrava. The reflection of the drug scene is based on the data processed by the EMCDDA (European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addictions), which publishes annual reports (European Drug Report) on the situation in each country and major European trends. At the national level, we draw on data from the National Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction run under the Office of the Government of the Czech Republic. It also publishes annual reports on the state of drug scene in the Czech Republic and newly also annual reports on the impact of gambling. These reports and their underlying research are an important source of information, in particular on the prevalence of drug use, abuse, use of social and health services or related drug crimes.

The report contains research results that, using synergy of qualitative and quantitative research practices, answer the question of which factors influence the effectiveness and efficiency of community work in socially excluded localities.

Vávrová, S. a Gojová, A. Models of social work accompanying housing. 2017.

The submitted analysis is based on the data gained from the qualitative research implemented by means of focus groups interviews – the focus groups consisted of the representatives of service providers working with the target group of people at risk of social exclusion due to the loss of housing; moreover, an expert interview with a representative of the contracting authority was carried out. The aim of the survey was to (1) study approaches and methods of social work with the target group (both individuals and families) excluded from stable housing and on this basis (2) to identify and describe the models of social work accompanying housing. For this reason, the research included only practitioners, i.e. experts from application sphere, in particular representatives of social services accompanying clients in supportive housing. The selection of informants was therefore intentional as it had been implemented through specific expert institutions. The data collected from 26 experts (16 women, 10 men) participating in the research were analysed. The main data collection techniques included four focus groups aimed at a content (56-112 minutes each) and 1 group interview. The results obtained were then reflected in the expert interview. The research material covered 156 A4 standard paper sized pages which were subsequently analysed using situational analysis procedures. On the basis of the analysis, we set up models of social work; it should be mentioned here that models are inherently a reduced reflection of social reality which they structure and simplify. They try to capture and explain the way the social reality functions in a broader socio-cultural context. That is why in our analysis, we do not focus exclusively on the models of social work accompanying housing, but also on the facts which belong to, or determine, the context of the social reality.
