Homeless people in Portugal face inequality and poverty every day. This project aims to reduce these inequalities and support people to a place where they are proud of their situation and their place in society.
Volunteers work in a homeless center with people from different backgrounds, though there is a specific focus on those with addictions who don’t have any social or family support. The center helps to minimize the social and individual risks caused by addiction and is a place where they can feel safe and where volunteers are able to create great value and meaning for them, just through being there.
Volunteers help with everyday tasks that can include preparing, cooking and distributing meals, developing sport and recreation activities, maintaining the center and sorting clothing donations.
Volunteers also can help homeless individuals with resources to help them close the gap on those more fortunate than them.
