Flora Acoge

The Flora Acoge foundation offers an important range of support. This includes a day centre offering breakfast & lunch, a night shelter for temporary accommodation and a recently started programme to help elderly people at home. Services are in Spanish but a person can come initially with a friend to help translate. The philosophy is one of mutual respect and users are encouraged to help take care of themselves. For more details, see the fuller description below (or the website in Spanish).
