Emmaus Marchienne is located in the suburbs west of Charleroi. Eight companions, all men, live at the community in a renovated farmhouse.
At the community’s second-hand shop the companions carry out the traditional work of Emmaus communities: collecting, sorting, repairing and selling goods at low prices. Two members of staff manage the community’s administrative affairs.
One is a social worker, the other a caseworker who are both there to support the companions with personal matters. Lastly, Emmaus Marchienne receives funding from the Walloon region as it is officially recognised as a shelter (maison d’accueil).
