We want to make people aware that people who live on the street are fighting daily and are desperately looking for solutions to get out of it.
Therefore, we share on this site, some videos and some testimonies, so that everyone becomes aware of the plight of people on the street.
The street is a world of violence and more vulnerable women are more and more numerous, while the reception structures intended for them are
rare. In Paris, the number of homeless women has increased by 66% in ten years. Every day, three out of four women cannot find accommodation.
For the homeless to get out of the streets, they must find someone who wants to help them, who accepts them as they are and who does not look at
them as plague victims.
A former homeless man said, I quote: "Life is an exchange. When it no longer exists, life slowly disappears without making any noise. People
on the street are hungry for us and we give them bread. We must resist the temptation to do to give themselves a good conscience and give
themselves to allow them to be able to re-believe, be reborn, re-live ”.
So let us be of these people, who we give ourselves, in order to put a little balm on their hearts and help them to be reborn.

Ervé, former homeless man. "I could have died on the street"
Pauline, 19 years old former child of ASE, slept outside for 2 years.
Young people placed in a foster home live under the aegis of Child Welfare. When they reach the age of majority, they no longer benefit from any protection, they cannot continue to benefit from the support of Social Aid for Children (ASE).
26% of homeless people are former "children in childcare".
Today, more than 10,000 people living on the streets were originally
welcomed by the ASE.
Tuesday April 2, 2019, the “Collectif des Morts de la rue” paid tribute in Paris to people who died on the street. Among its members, Ervé, a former homeless man, recounts his journey and how he came out of it.
