Local Seminar of Stakeholders in Szczypiorno 4th of October 2013

In October 2013, The Antidotum Association organized Second Local Seminar of Stakeholders of Homelessness dedicated to strengthening cooperation of local institutions. Seminar took place in The Home for Therapy and Social Reintegration run by the Association in Szczypiorno about 80 km north of Warsaw. Quite spectacular group of participants gathered with representatives of the Ministry of Labor and Social Policy, Mazovian Voivodship Office, local Mayors and officers from local governments, social welfare centres and other. CMSA took part in this event supporting its organization and giving presentations which reflected on the position of human being in the support system and FEANTSA conceptual and operational definition of homelessness. We had a chance to watch a stirring movie on the work done by the Antidotum Association which was inspired and co-produced by inhabitants of the Home for Therapy who also actively participated in the Seminar all along. The event has been organized within the project “Mainstreaming Instruments Facilitating the Process of Getting out of Homelessness in the Rural Environment” co-funded by the Mazowian Voivodship Office.
