We want to be with those who are in fragile situations in the streets of Lisbon.
By standing together and monitoring the streets, our aim is to reduce risks, promote health and social integration of vulnerable people by taking action in the community and investing in specific training.

Much of the work carried out by our teams, in several of the projects implemented, requires the use of a van, either to transport and accompany our beneficiaries to the various social and health care structures, or to transport all the material used by Outreach Teams, or even for the collection and transport of furniture, regular activity in the É UMA VIDA and É UMA CASA projects, which is required for the houses made available to the beneficiaries. In all projects, the team’s means of transportation is essential for their proper functioning and the achievement of the objectives we set for improving the living conditions of the people we accompany. It is our best way to reach our beneficiaries better, traveling daily to the various points of the city of Lisbon where more people are found in situations of vulnerability. The work of the Crescer Teams covers all parishes in the city of Lisbon and referrals and the respective transport of beneficiaries are frequently made to structures inside or outside the city, for example to the different therapeutic communities based in different regions of the country.
