This description of Charles-Edouard Vincent's work was prepared when Charles-Edouard Vincent was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2012.
Charles-Edouard Vincent promotes economic citizenship and new alliances to transform the way France responds to homelessness. Based on his work in Paris involving a wide range of stakeholders—from social organizations to corporations to the relevant French Ministries—he has invented a more effective and integrated model to engage homeless people through employment in order to tackle the deep-seated issues that initially led them to live on the streets.
