The project RAISE
The project beneficiaries have been 140 families living in Collective Centers, which ensure decent housing solutions, a path toward economic self-sufficiency and social integration, helping them in reducing everlasting marginalization. The path of social integration has been achieved by applying different modes of action:
- mentoring to families, to support the elaboration of a development path (integration plans in a rural environment) and its necessary aids;
- psycho-social services to bring the local community (education, health, social, recreational, etc..) complex during the transition from collective centers to new rural communities of residence;
- case-by-case approach, based on the individual needs of vulnerable families.
