The hospitality in the House
Casa della Carità is a real house, where guests, social operators and volunteers are linked together by an open relation of mutual trust and respect.
The house welcomes everyday 150 people: men, women, singles, families, Italians and foreigners are hosted in the house for a determined period of time, and are actively involved in their own social and economical re-integration project.
In fact, the people that find a shelter in the House, generally come from a condition of relational and economical poverty: our challenge is to give a concrete answer to their needs and to support their path towards social and economical inclusion.
The counseling center
The counseling center is open during week days, and it provides social assistance and psychological support to everybody who needs help. It is the very first place where everybody who knocks at the house door can be listened to and point out his/her real need: a shelter, a job, social or legal free support, medical or psychiatrical care or assistance. This service works in connection with the other services of the House and integrated with the public institutions and the non-profit associations of the city.
The legal guidance centre
It promotes equity and legal guardianship, and offers legal guidance to everybody who needs free legal assistance: guests of the house, people sent by the counseling center, roma people followed by the projects of the House or living in camps or irregular slums.
The shower and wardrobe service
It offers an essential service to everybody who hasn’t other chances of self-care: homeless people or immigrants living in slums or irregular camps. It offers the possibility of having a hot shower and receiving clean clothes three times a week, and it is a concrete chance for the operators of the house to meet and try to create a relationship to the people living in the most marginalized situations. Sometimes, through this service, the most vulnerable people knocking at the house door can find access to the other services of the house (medical or legal assistance, hospitality etc…), and to undertake a course toward their social and economical inclusion.
The medical and psychiatric ambulatory
Inside the House there is a medical and a psychiatric ambulatory, which provides free medical and psychiatric assistance to everybody who needs medical care or pycological support and can’t rely on the public sanitary service (in particular immigrants without regular documents and sanitary insurance).
