Project Detail #1

The Foyer Project is a charity hostel for young homeless adults between 16 and 25 yrs old based around providing a stable home life as well as life-skills education. The goal is to return the residents to the community as self-sufficient, well-balanced people. A large portion of this effort is centered on health: exercise, hygiene, cooking, eating habits and nutrition. They have recently installed a growing space and greenhouse to involve the residents in growing their own food both as an exercise in practicality and as therapy.
