Date: 28 November, 2014.
Place: Headquarters of the Federation of Entities and Centres for integration and assistance to marginalized groups (FACIAM).
On 28 November, the Fernando Pombo Foundation had the pleasure of presenting the “Practical guide to the customary legal issues of people living on the street” and the “Legal report on Peniaphobia: fear of poverty” (available for download) at the FACIAM General Assembly. Both publications were prepared within the framework of the first edition of the EXEQUO Project, together with the RAIS Foundation.
The objective of FACIAM is an ethical commitment to the prevention, assistance and social integration of the homeless. In recent years it has managed to consolidate an extensive aid network which at today’s date has 570 beds in temporary shelters, 603 spots at soup kitchens and 310 spots at day centres available for the homeless. These services are complemented with a number of social support resources, such as orientation and social integration workshops, psychological assistance, individual and group assistance and social support.
More information on the Fernando Pombo Foundation’s work in issues related to homelessness can be found on the website of the EXEQUO Project.
