The Hietaniemenkatu Service Centre is a round-the-clock service centre for the homeless. Its purpose is to improve the living conditions of the worst-off homeless people in Helsinki. The centre aims to act as a strongly rehabilitation-oriented unit which refers people requiring further aid to the services they need.
