We offered them a hotel structure, as an emergency accommodation, with several objectives :
- helping them to be sheltered and to have a rest ;
- helping them to find sustainable and stable housing as soon as possible ;
- re-establishing their confidence and building social ties with them, to increase their social integration potential.
