The government gives Mambré Foundation 7 flats for homeless people
The Catalan government and Fundació Mambré have signed an agreement that hands over management of seven homes in the province of Barcelona, to be used as accommodation for homeless people..
The counsellor for Governance, Public Administration and Housing, Meritxell Borràs, the director of the Catalonian Housing Agency, Jaume Fornt, and the director of Mambré Foundation, Meritxell Collelldemont, have signed a four-year agreement that includes the allocation of three homes in Barcelona, two in Hospitalet de Llobregat, one in Badalona and one in Sant Pere de Ribes.
The event was also overseen by the secretary of Housing and Urban Improvement, Carles Sala, the director of Housing Advancement, Albert Toledo, and the president of Mambré Foundation, Manuel Lecha.
This agreement is a great opportunity to continue offering homes to people who need them, especially during the current climate in which the high cost makes housing extremely difficult to access. It’s an effort that needs the commitment of the administration—as is the case here—in order to make progress in the fight against homelessness.
The homes will go to people who have no home, and to people who, after having lived on the streets at some point in their lives, find themselves in the last stages of the social and personal independence journey.
