Emmaus, founded in Paris in 1949, offers more than a bed for the night and a hot meal.
Emmaus supports more than 850 formerly homeless people providing them with support, a home for as long as they need it and meaningful work and training in their social enterprises.
Although living in a community isn’t for everyone, it can offer the companionship and support that many people who have experienced homelessness have lost. This can be key to helping someone to stop, take stock, and start to regain a sense of control and stability in their lives.
