Co-building projects for children’s homes with French administrative Departments
Within the competence of the French administrative Departments, child protection is sorely lacking in financial and human resources. The REALITES Endowment Fund offers, in collaboration with child protection professionals and in response to requests from French administrative Departments, a project to create and run children’s homes dedicated to siblings.

Supporting the Group’s sponsorship actions
The Endowment Fund initiated its first sponsorship action in 2020 with the LAZARUS association, which runs and develops solidarity-based, shared accommodation between young workers and people who have been homeless.
This financial support of € 250,000 helps support the development of LAZARUS in France and internationally.
In October 2020, a poster campaign featuring duos composed of a REALITES employee and a LAZARUS roommate raised awareness among the general public of the importance of the fight against the exclusion of people in precarious situations.
« At LAZARUS, we believe that it is more than a roof over one’s head, homeless people above all need human relationships. The support from the Endowment Fund will allow us to confidently look ahead to our future house openings planned in Nantes, Rennes and Bordeaux, and to carry out our development projects in France, Geneva and Mexico City. With this support, LAZARUS can legitimately turn its dreams into REALITIES.«Loïc LUISETTO
