The centre will welcome homeless people who have migrated to France to escape war, cutting or forced marriage. Beds will also be set aside for people with disabilities who are marginalised from society.

Role of the ENGIE Foundation

The Foundation is helping to renovate the building that will provide accommodation at the Charles Foix Hospital. This project follows on from previous initiatives undertaken with Samu Social, a long-standing partner of the Foundation.
