receiving “livelihood protection” welfare benefits, we mainly provide
housing to people who have been on the streets or have other difficulties.
At Sanyūsō, we serve many former day laborers that lived in simple lodgings in the neighborhood (called “doya”), as well as people who have experienced homelessness and now are on livelihood protection welfare benefits. These people need assistance since their disabilities and illnesses make it difficult for them to live on their own.
rooms are three tatami mats in size and each has an air conditioner,
television, and bed.
We provide persons staying at Sanyūsō with three meals per day and when necessary, provide consultation, health maintenance, and assistance in daily life.
Of the 21 rooms, one is for emergency shelter. The shelter room provides temporary emergency housing for patients of the Sanyū clinic and persons who have come for consultation to Sanyūkai and do not have a place to stay while they wait to go to the welfare office.
