Un Toit Vers l’Emploi, support for economic integration and housing in France
Finding work when living on the street is generally extremely unrealistic. How can you fully devote yourself to finding a job without having the means to wash yourself, eat or feel safe… and often with self-esteem at its lowest? Even if opportunities do arise, they would have to be in close vicinity, as mobility is often very limited: no driving license or vehicle, no means of renting accommodation…
Entrepreneurs du Monde therefore started, in 2019, the program “Un Toit vers l’Emploi” based in Rouen, to offer a path for social and economic reintegration to homeless people, articulated around two principles:
- Offering small wood mobile homes through its simplified joint-stock company for social purposes, “La Fabrik à Yoops”.
- Supporting socio-economic integration through the associative structure, “La Case Départ”
Methodology of “Un Toit Vers L’Emploi”: “La Fabrique à Yoops” and “La Case Départ”
Incubation by Entrepreneurs du Monde
As with all the programs that it creates and incubates, Entrepreneurs du Monde structures and supports the “Un Toit Vers l’Emploi” program on all levels (legal, financial, methodology, human and financial resources, management, reporting, etc.) to eventually become an operationally and financially autonomous entity. The economic viability of “Un Toit vers l’Emploi” will be built thanks to the rents collected on the tiny houses and to the tiny houses sold to others by its social business.
