Doucheflux sans abris doucheSocial mission

DoucheFLUX is a day centre for homeless and destitute people. It focuses on human beings and their dignity, and offers a range of services (showers, a launderette, lockers, psychological and medical care, etc.) and activities.

What does DoucheFlux do?

  • Services

Showers are certainly DoucheFLUX’s flagship service. Taking a shower is generally the first step towards regaining your dignity by taking care of your own body (again). On average, about a hundred people come to our center every day to use one of the 20 shower cabins.

In addition to the showers, we offer a range of services attending to other aspects of a person’s well-being: a launderette, hair-dressing, manicure, pedicure, a clothes bank, psychological and medical care, yoga, birthday parties, etc. We also go out to meet people living on the street.

  •  Activities

All DoucheFLUX activities are organised by teams which include people who are destitute or who have experience of living on the street. Not only do these activities help the under-privileged speak out, they also aim to raise public awareness about the issues of precarity and homelessness, rising above the often destructive clichés and prejudices. 

DoucheFLUX Magazine, DoucheFLUX On Air (“La Voix de la Rue” broadcast on Radio Panik (105.4FM)), DoucheFLUX Film-Debates, DoucheFLUX Meets Schools (meeting secondary-school students), Think Tank, Outside! (a board game about life on the street), sport activities, etc.
