To support the most vulnerable and excluded populations with the aim of rehabilitating them in terms of their social skills and competences. This is achieved through the development of activities which are integrated in ‘structured’ programs and imply a constant participation of the person, or flexible programs whose attendance depends on the person’s motivation.
To support and promote the development of the personal appreciation by maximizing the user’s capabilities, with the intention of promoting personal autonomy and the development of skills which will allow a greater responsiveness in different contexts.
Preparing for an alternative life path and if possible towards specific treatment programs and social and professional (re)insertion.
Espaço Âncora is a social solution open to the community and consists of a set of services available to the target population who need to be busy during the day.
It is imperative that conditions of trust be created and that the center is seen as a place of support, care and acquisition of skills. The beneficiaries are free to choose from a set of means, services and take advantage of them as long as they wish based on their personal needs and objectives.
This place relies on specialized technicians who implement activities with the target population.
An alternative space for socializing has been developed where the recreational activities are organized and implemented. This helps reinforce change within the target population, by discovering personal skills.
Guided activities promote the discovery of new interests and friendships with the purpose of acquiring social skills.
