Social residences : Independent social housing

The Needs

For people in a medically-stable state and whose recovery process allows them to rely on their own.



To provide decent housing as means to achieve social inclusion before complete independence.



Our social residence (résidence sociale) in Seine Saint Denis

A social residence is the final stop before regular, permanent housing.
Only social assistance is provided and residents are fully independent, they also contribute to the costs of living as if they were already in conventional accommodation (i.e. rent and condo charges).


"Financial contribution is compulsory. But it is also highly effective from an educational point of view, as we also work on how to manage a budget. It is essential for next steps in the social inclusion process."
