The Don Tonino Bello shelter for the homeless

The Don Giovanni Pirone Association was created in Salerno in 2005 to support and promote the recovery of individuals struggling with difficult situations due to their physical, mental and socio-economic conditions.

The new center will provide three specific services: 
• Initial Reception Area: 8 large rooms that can accommodate up to 23 people (whose average stay will typically be of one month), 1 room for recreational and daily activities, sanitary facilities with showers and laundry rooms
• Semi-residential Common Area: 7 double bedrooms, sanitary facilities with shower, a kitchen, living room for meals, and a laundry room. The Common Area’s 14 guests will have a longer stay in the structure, since each of them will participate in a training and reintegration course
• Social and administrative offices, as well as a medical clinic where guests can receive the necessary attention, make appointments for medical examinations, speak with social workers and psychologists, and set up meetings or appointments with local territorial services and recovery communities.

Enel Cuore supported the initiative with a contribution aimed at restructuring a part of the Center hosting the semi-residential Common Area.
