Where to eat, where to sleep, where to get treatment? With the economic, social and human crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, a growing number of people living in precarious situations are faced with these questions every day. That is why the Social Service has reissued the brochure presenting the emergency shelters in Geneva, updated in collaboration with its associative partners. Easy to read with pictograms and a map of the city, this brochure meets a social emergency now more than ever.

How to get hold of it?

Distributed by the Social Service and its partner associations, this brochure is available for download at the bottom of the page and can also be found on the City’s website.

A roof over one’s head is a fundamental human right and the very basis for any life project. The regular reissue of this brochure is part of an emergency shelter measure coordinated by the Department of Social Cohesion and Solidarity in close collaboration with a network of associative partners providing expertise and developing complementary projects in response to the social emergency.

The Social Service provides emergency accommodation in a Civil Defence shelter during the winter and at the Centre Frank Thomas throughout the year. Hot meals are also distributed to people in need every day at the Plainpalais community hall. This measure is accompanied by a highly diversified range of partner associations active in the field of emergency shelter which provide homeless people with places to eat, sleep, wash and obtain medical care.
