In this 240-square-meter space, all items, furniture, clothes and toys donated to the association are stored and offered for sale. Inaugurated on September 15, 2019, after a few months of trial period in which it was prepared to welcome visitors from the Autism Association Florence Onlus, the space welcomed its first work placements in February 2020.
Since then, the number of people sent from the different areas of Social Services (disability, mental health, addiction) has increased as has the number of volunteers helping to create a very beautiful and welcoming place for everyone.
The strength of this project lies in the opportunity to become financially self-sufficient, offering vulnerable people and those with disabilities a place to learn while working, interacting in a setting open to all: young and old, of all abilities.
