Entrepreneurs for the most vulnerable
Homeless or extremely poor people
Today in France, 12 million people are affected by the housing crisis, which affects people who were previously spared. Losing a job, going through financial difficulties, experiencing a family breakdown or domestic violence… All of these factors make people vulnerable and can lead to a housing issue.
Groupe SOS therefore offers a variety of housing and support solutions while respecting each person’s dignity. We are convinced that housing is an essential foundation to regain one’s place in society.
Our accommodation facilities in detail
The purpose of these facilities is to settle individuals who have been living in precarious conditions for a long period of time in housing adapted to their issues (physical, psychological and/or social), while allowing them to experience a communal life.
Rental mediation services
They offer an alternative to collective or hotel accommodation for families struggling to access housing.
Emergency Accommodation Centres and Homeless Shelters
CHUs (Centre d’Hébergement d’Urgence) and CHRSs (Centre d’Hébergement et de Réinsertion Sociale) provide, on referral from the regional housing coordination services (SIAO) or the social emergency hotline (115), unconditional shelter for homeless people, single people, couples or families, in collective or dispersed accommodation, permanent housing and comprehensive support.
Day and night shelters
In response to the rise of extreme poverty and homelessness, this division is developing daytime and overnight reception centres to offer rest and respite, where people can access hygiene and a hot meal, as well as permanent social support.
