Vision:To be a model program, by the year 2018, in comprehensive care and inclusion for people with disabilities, promoting rights-based active inclusion in society according to their abilities.

Mission: We are a programme that satisfies the needs of a comprehensive care and inclusion for people with disabilities in situations of abandonment, generating a family atmosphere with security, health, rehabilitation and education.

Purpose: Provide quality of life and happiness for the programme’s beneficiaries.


Accomodation:

The volunteer will live at the project.


Activities:
Quality of Life: This strategic approach aims to provide the people with disabilities all the necessary elements for them to live in a dignified and happy way. The quantitative leap in this area is that it is not enough just to provide a safe environment and provide for the basic needs, but to pursue the people’s happiness. This represents an intense approach regarding staff development and support for the implementation of the life plan for people with disabilities, regardless of the depth of their deficiency.

To achieve this, a multi-disciplinary professional team will be established, composed of psychologists, social workers, teachers, doctors, nurses, functional therapists, personal assistants and support equipment that will allow for the development of care programs and personal development at the same time.

Generation of skills for Life: This strategic aim is oriented to develop the educational and vocational skills of people who are independent or moderately independent, so they can be included in sheltered workshops. The activities that will be carried out seek that young people and adults with disabilities can go about building a livelihood that contributes to their self-sufficiency, but especially in the construction of their personal identity and self-esteem.

Independent Life: the programme designed for youth and adults classified as independent and that seeks to provide the necessary support to promote autonomy and independence through apprenticeships useful for their integral development. This means, developing actions that progressively increase their security, confidence and self-esteem, and maintaining or improving their physical state and their health. In this programme, skills will be strengthened and developed in the following areas:
Development of skills for life and home, Psycho-social development, Academic and professional development and Labour and Workforce development.

Link with the community: The “Los Ángeles” programme plans to generate a close link between the inhabitants of the municipality of Valle de Angeles and surrounding communities with the goal of building social fabric and that people with disabilities feel part of a community, while awareness is raised in the community and there is support for the activities developed by the programme.
As a first instance, we have developed a disability prevention programme and subsequently outreach activities will be developed to link church groups, volunteers and entrepreneurs with the youth with disabilities.
