Family Centres

The diversification of family realities (patchwork families, single-parent families etc.) has led to new challenges. The difficult situation on the job market exacerbates the pauperisation of already vulnerable families. Isolation, material difficulties, or a lack of self-esteem often present obstacles for families to find the required solutions.

The Family Centre approach (Maison des Familles) was developed to meet the challenge of accompanying families who find themselves in fragile situations. Together with associate partners, the Apprentis d’Auteuil Foundation created the Family Centres, in order to accompany economically or relationally vulnerable families. There are currently 13 Family Centres in France..

Project “Discovering Yourself and the Other”

Since 2018, the Compagnie Fruitière Fund has financed the project “Discovering Yourself and the Other”, designed to improve the conditions for welcoming children and parents at the Marseille Family Centre, La Halte des Parents. Thanks to this support, a roof terrace adjacent to the building was rehabilitated. The objective was to create a space that is both secure and stimulating for children, and encourages interaction between parents and children. In 2019, the Compagnie Fruitière Fund will accompany the design of various additional spaces: a playground, an urban gardening patch, and a reception area. Inauguration is expected in September 2019.
