08 Jul A mobile unit gives hot food to the people of Arona …
The Social Services area of the City of Arona keeps in service the mobile unit that runs through the different population centers of the municipality with the aim of locating homeless people, attend them correctly, distribute hot food among them, detect possible pathologies and activate mechanisms necessary for its integration.
This resource complements the model chosen by the municipality to meet and achieve full social inclusion of the homeless, called "Housing First", which seeks an individualized solution to "homelessness" and in which Arona has been a pioneer in all Canary Islands.
The mobile service of attention is kept in march thanks to the agreement of collaboration by which the corporation will subsidize -with an amount of 57,000 euros- the operation of this mobile unit through the Spanish Red Cross in an agreement that has been initialed by the councilor of Social Services, Elena Cabello, and the special delegate of this organization in the Comitecal Committee of Abona, Benito Pablo Hernández.
The Social Emergency Unit provides dinner and hot breakfast coverage to people who lack economic resources in order to cover their most basic food needs.
These visits, which are carried out by different population centers of the municipality, allow, in addition, to detect associated pathologies, mobilize resources, offer attention and advice and promote the adoption of policies for their social integration.
The project is based on the fact that in the phenomenon of homeless people factors that can not be understood solely from the point of view of the lack of housing, but have to do with mental illness, broken families, addictions or difficulties of adaptation after the abandonment of prison to those who have been interned in them.
