The Elizabeth drop-in centre, Paris

Crescendo runs a drop-in centre in the 20th arrondissement, which is dedicated not only to parents but to families which are facing social or professional exclusion. Here people can ask questions and meet specialists, psychologists or social workers depending on the nature and severity of their needs.
