What is Casa Limiar?
Casa Limiar serves vulnerable children that are brought into the home through the judicial system who have suffered ill-treatment, abandonment, living in situations of risk, among other reasons and are sheltered until they can be reintegrated with their families, adopted, or age out of the program at the age of 18.
In operation since April 2003, Casa Limiar, managed with the support of the City of São Paulo, has the capacity to serve approximately 20 children and adolescents ranging in age from newborn to 18 years of age, coming from situations of social vulnerability. In order to provide a healthy family environment, the shelter provides all the basic needs, ensuring all children maintain a routine according to their age group, including participation in the life of the local community through attendance in public school, preschool programs for the toddlers, other educational, cultural, sports, and leisure activities. They also assist the teens with initiation of professional activities. Casa Limiar also provides medical, psychological, dental and pharmaceutical care using the public health system.
