Night shelter of last resort ‘La Halte de Nuit’ in Nantes
Short description
This zoom-in explores the potential of a strong link being established between the 5Bridges project and the recent national Housing First strategy launched in 2017 by the French government, for the benefit of homeless people in Nantes.

The work presented herein serves as a teaser for encouraging key people, such as leading figures in Les Eaux Vives and in the city administration who are already convinced of the potential of Housing First, to turn the 5Bridges project in to a model of Housing First for the region and the country, and potentially even for Europe.
