Help for vulnerable people: la Mie de Pain

La Mie de Pain is a charity organisation founded in 1887. It aims to support vulnerable people, who are marginalised or excluded from society, guiding them "from emergency to integration".

The association’s work focuses on four main areas:

  • Providing assistance to people in danger (food aid, medical care, accommodation, etc.)
  • Providing social support and helping people to reintegrate into society (learning how to live with others, how to communicate, etc.)
  • Guiding people towards successful integration in the world of work and long-term accommodation solutions (training, house hunting, etc.)
  • Raising public awareness of the problem of vulnerability and exclusion and changing perceptions of impoverished people.

Six sites (in Paris):

In its day-to-day pursuit of these objectives, La Mie de Pain takes action in a number of ways to support and guide marginalised people and help with their reintegration into society.

  • Provision of food, accommodation and social support: Le Refuge (emergency accommodation centre)
  • Making daily life easier: Le Relais Social (information and guidance centre), L’Arche d’Avenirs (daytime drop-in centre)
  • Regaining independence: Le Chantier d’Insertion, La Villa de l’Aube (family boarding house and social residence), Le Foyer des Jeunes Travailleurs "Paulin Enfert" (hostel for young workers).

CMS Francis Lefebvre Avocats's donations are used to buy food and cover the accommodation costs of homeless people, as well as to improve the services offered to them.

CMS Francis Lefebvre Avocats has supported La Mie de Pain’s “From emergency to integration” programme since 2009.
