Kulosaari Living Community

The Kulosaari Living Community (Kulis) offers supported housing to unhoused individuals in Helsinki aged 18-40.

Before making the decision to move in, you have the opportunity to visit Kulis and assess whether this living arrangement suits your needs. 

Conveniently located near the metro line in Kulosaari, Kulis offers a cosy and intimate living environment. The community consists of a small cellular unit with 22 places, and our dedicated staff is available around the clock to provide support and assistance. 

At Kulis, we collaborate with you, your social worker, and assigned instructor to create a personalised housing plan. The aim is to support your recovery and empower you to regain control of your life at your own pace. You have the freedom to set your own goals, and our staff members are there to assist and guide you towards achieving them. 

On Saturdays, we come together for a delightful brunch, which is prepared by the morning shift instructor. Everyone is welcome to join and enjoy the meal. During the summer, we organise barbecues in the yard and engage in fun activities such as Mölkky and darts. Additionally, you have the opportunity to participate in small-scale work assignments at Kulis, for which we provide pocket money.
