In 2017, ONG Foundation San Lucas will have to meet the challenge of a vocational training for victims of violence, as part of the integral attention. Additionally, a medical, integral and inter-institutional model of attention and prevention is planned, with emphasis on violence prevention; with the support of groups existing in the communities, subjects on machismo, myths and taboos are supposed to support a cultural change. To break and alter the family´s experience of violence, the objective is tackled with increased intensity, setting up violence prevention in schools, establishing parent´s groups and male groups. Centro ARETE, the already established integral center of assistance to victims of domestic and sexual violence, and human trafficking, is the key element within the so called “Ruta crítica”, the official channel predetermined by the relevant authorities of the Dept. Río San Juan.
Integral assistance and counselling to women, victims of domestic violence.
Admission and protection at the women´s refuge, for women and their children, subject to dangerous situation.
