At Clermont-Ferrand, the CeCler association opens its doors to more than 3,500 homeless persons, asylum seekers and refugees every year.
The Michelin Corporate Foundation is involved at its side to bring help to these people who often have health problems but cannot be hospitalized.
The Foundation is aware that the Auvergne region lacks facilities and has given its backing to the “Lits, Halte, Soins, Santé” (LHSS) project which has enabled the CeCler association to open the first twenty beds in the Puy-de-Dôme and to install equipment such as an access ramp and a specially-adapted front door and a bedroom for persons with impaired mobility.
In this way, more than 55 people have been given accommodation and treatment and aided on their path back into work and society.
With this community project the Michelin Corporate Foundation is acting against social exclusion and for the respect of human dignity.
