For the overwhelming majority our shelters have become the last hope for survival!
Here many people can find a place to stay, food, comfort, care, and a humane attitude towards one another. Once these people come to us, most of them stay with us forever.
Huge numbers of people are on the streets, without any means to provide for their existence or the chance to change something in their lives.
About many of these people you can't say “They themselves are at fault.” Most are lonely old people, victims of fraud or accidents, refugees from the ATO zone or just people who made a couple of wrong and critical decisions. Here they are provided with all the necessary conditions for a normal life: first aid, housing, food, and clothes. The assistance is also provided in the re-obtainment of documents, gaining or restoration of professional skills and employment if necessary.
Often these people don't find us by themselves. In most cases they find their new home thanks to caring citizens who bring them to us, the police, hospitals and the Ministry of Emergencies officers who are instructed about the location of our shelters or heating points (open during winter seasons) and who do not disdain to put the homeless in their service car, and thanks to our Emergency Homeless Service Patrol who are constantly patrolling our street.
