Get the homeless off the street

Alain Mérieux is also the founder of the Enterprise of Possibilities, a platform supported by economic actors to help associations fight great insecurity. He has made helping the homeless, young people and women a priority. Two years later, more than 1,000 people were helped and 500 people were taken off the streets.

When the local associations, the prefect and the communities were at the meeting point, “there was a shortage of businesses,” he explains. “We have already mobilized 30,000 employees, there are 600,000. We have to go much further, much faster. We want to double our market share quickly. The goal is not just money, but a new state of mind, a decomposition of thoughts. “”
