Poste Italiane S.p.A : Housing autonomy for women victim of violence
Poste Italiane has identified 10 accommodations throughout the country, preferring large provincial capitals, belonging to the real estate assets to reserve for the housing autonomy of women victims of violence, their daughters and minor children, who are in conditions of particular economic hardship.
The experimental project, in partnership with the realities of the Third Sector and Local Authorities, is entirely financed by Poste Italiane. Especially for the full availability of the furnished apartments.
The start-up phase of the project saw the inauguration of the housing and the subsequent start of the leases with the signing of free loans for use.
A Memorandum of Understanding signed between Poste Italiane and the Ministry for Equal Opportunities and Family, created an institutional framework for the entire project.
At present, the project will have a five-year duration of 3 years plus 2, starting from the start date of the lease contracts.
RESULTS and IMPACT
Assuming a capacity of 3/4 beds per property, depending on the presence or not of small children, potential paths may involve a maximum of 40 women per year. For 5 years, the number would amount to 200 total courses. About 10 courses per year may be destined, if necessary, to employees of Poste Italiane who are victims of violence.
