Caritas Malta

Within the Caritas Harm Reduction Project, supported by the Vodafone Malta Foundation, homeless clients with a drug addiction are offered the opportunity to take up temporary residence at the Shelter until more permanent accommodation can be arranged for them. They are professionally assessed and have a tailored treatment plan prepared for them. The plan aims to help them stabilize their chaotic lifestyle with a balance between practical social work and intensive psychotherapy. The Shelter also functions as a Drop-in centre for clients who have some array of difficulties but who are not homeless. This centre is to attract persons with drug addiction who might otherwise be roaming the streets to get them together, offer them some basic nourishment and begin the laborious task of engaging them in therapy.
