The reception committee is made up of a group of volunteers who take turns manning the reception hours, or “permanences”, for those seeking housing. Welcoming people, providing general information on the cooperative, and registering them for our mailing list are the primary functions of the committee.

The reception hours occur on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 18h30 to 19h30, which represents 2, 3, or 4 hours of your time by trimester. These reception hours are extremely important as they are the first contact newcomers have with the Ciguë.

The committee is currently coordinated by Dimitri. If you would like to participate, contact her at
