The Maison du Père operations department oversees food, property, laundry and cloakroom services.
It must make sure that all these services are well equipped to perform their many respective daily tasks, so that they are ready to serve our 325 daily users. It's a bit like a big hotel, but where you have to do a lot with less.
To succeed, this requires the coordination of dozens of employees as well as other helping hands appointed at Maison du Père to perform community service, which poses some additional management challenges (for example, highly variable work schedules).
We also need to resolve the occasional conflicts, direct efforts and always innovate to meet the basic needs of users: good meal, clean bed, hot water, and seasonal clothes, in good condition. Why? So that users benefit from the essentials, which then allows them to use the clinical services of Maison du Père as a springboard towards a better and more independent life, without the drawbacks of precariousness.
