Working with all household members

CaixaProinfancia seeks to break the line of transmission from parent to child poverty and promote the full potential and capabilities of children, trying to ensure that, despite the difficulties, have an open door to a better future and enjoy the same opportunities as others.

This leads to the development of a work plan with the entire family.

It is a comprehensive approach to child poverty, focusing on the daily work with all members of the family unit.

The program is developed, since 2007, in the main Spanish cities and their metropolitan areas: Barcelona, ​​Bilbao, Madrid, Seville, Malaga, Murcia, Valencia, Zaragoza, Palma de Mallorca, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

One of the key objectives is to ensure CaixaProinfancia promotion of socio children, understanding that this depends to a large extent, their future welfare.

This is expressed in the development of five major lines: strengthening education, non-formal education and leisure, family educational support, psychosocial therapy and care and health promotion.

Since the municipal social services alongside these organizations are the ones who know the specific needs of each area, the program is responsible for completing the action carried out in favor of social inclusion of families with children, and contribute to deepen the entity in its most genuine social action: the daily work to ensure that, as part of an inclusive process, families at risk of social exclusion enjoy a more normal life as possible.

The program proposes a model of social action, so that the various organizations, and social services to government, are responsible for identifying children and families qualifying for assistance, as well as globally assess the child's needs .
