Fondation Abbé Pierre

Fondation Abbé Pierre for accommodating the underprivileged (FAP), an officially recognised non-profit association on 11th February 1992, is a foundation whose mission is to allow vulnerable populations to have access to decent housing and a dignified life, whatever their resources or social situation.

Fondation Abbé Pierre finances and supports associations that fight against substandard housing and exclusion. It supports close to 900 projects each year, both in France and abroad, focusing on: building ‘very social’ housing; fighting against inadequate accommodation; helping and housing homeless people; providing legal advice and support to the poorly housed; raising awareness and lobbying public authorities. The Foundation is spread across France in 9 regional agencies, 30 Solidarity Boutiques, and 40 family pensions.
