Context of the community in which he works

Currently, the Nuevos Horizontes Social Centre hosts 140 children and adolescents in vulnerable situations and has a wide impact on the community. It is a place recognised by the inhabitants and it has taken on the role of a space for prevention, service and help in the face of the different needs and problems that arise at a personal, family and community level.

Its goals

In the Social Centre, the aim is to re-establish broken family ties, to promote the integral well-being of the family while respecting its cultural dimension, to offer psychological care, to promote physical and mental well-being, to stimulate and reactivate the family economy and to accompany the reality of the different families present on a daily basis, in a personalised manner.

Main activities carried out

In the 18 years of its history, the Social Centre has developed various activities aimed mainly at serving and accompanying the children and adolescents of the district. In its facilities, daily activities are carried out, such as school support and spaces for dialogue; recreational workshops, painting, sports, etc. are also organised. Services include health care with a medical consultancy and psychological and psycho-pedagogical support and workshops for the prevention of child sexual abuse and domestic violence, as well as support workshops for women.
