The City of Athens Homeless Foundation was established as a Legal Entity of Public Law under the name "City of Athens Homeless Shelter" (KYADA) in 1999 (Presidential Decree 289/1999, Official Government Gazette 250A/18 -11-1999). Nevertheless, the organisation entered into independent operation with its own infrastructure, independent services and a separate budget in early 2005, following approval of the Internal Service Organisation by the Prefecture General Secretary (Decision 9449/Official Government Gazette 304V/8-3-2005).

The basic aim of the programmes planned and implemented by the City of Athens Homeless Foundation is to tackle problems faced by humans who, for whatever reason, are without shelter or whose home is unsafe and inadequate. It also seeks to develop mechanisms to prevent such phenomena and monitor cases of homeless individuals so as to ensure their eventual rehabilitation and social reintegration. In carrying out its mission, the Homeless Foundation works together with agencies which share the same goals.

Beyond the other services it offers, the Foundation collects and distributes food items, clothing, shoes etc to those who visit or are hosted at the shelter, as well as families and individuals located by its staff, other social services, parishes, volunteers and collaborating agencies.

KYADA provides 1,200 meals to destitute and homeless Greeks and foreign nationals on a daily basis at the Foundation's Meal Provision Centre.

KYADA operates two Hostels where it offers short-term accommodation (3-6 months) to 180 persons, while its Social Services section offers counselling and psychological support and social rehabilitation and reintegration to guests.
