Job description

The context of the project 

Sorocity is the temporary occupation of social housing that is empty before being demolished by 2028. In the meantime, these vacant spaces are being used as housing for women who were experiencing homelessness. The objective is to allow them to leave the street for good, give them the means to rebuild themselves and ensure the transition to permanent housing

The project is based on three pillars: access to quality housing without conditions at a democratic price, the implementation of individualized psychomedico-social support offered by our partners Housing First and the development of socio-community activities with the aim of forging new links and integrating into the neighborhood.
