Our youth

Nobody can suspect that these young people live in a lodging resource. From the outside, like all young people aged 18 to 25, with one exception, they are temporarily homeless.

They are intelligent, full of potential, resourceful, dreamlike and determined to get out of it. They have strength, hope and courage. These young people simply need to be listened to, respected, valued, encouraged, supervised, to rub shoulders with significant models in order to be able to regain confidence in their means, to flourish, to realize themselves.
