Housing and social inclusion
- 21% of individuals sheltered in emergency organizations are supported for more than one year, 18% are sheltered for more than two years.
This indicates a failure in the process of inclusion.
- To face this deficiency, people are put up in hotel rooms ; yet this costs around EUR 120 million every year in France!
- On the other hand demographic growth is increasing and the number of parents with one or more children has tripled since 2000, as well as the proportion of the workforce.
- To provide a global multidisciplinary approach.
- To maintain a continuous dynamism in favour of social inclusion.
- To help the care beneficiaries take on increasing responsibilities in everyday life, an effective method in regaining self-esteem and achieving social integration.
"Today, the question is: how to cater for families? It is absolutely essential. What if we are not able to adapt and soften explosive situations? Aren’t we preparing tomorrow’s juvenile delinquency?"
