They are committed to justice and the renewal of society besides promoting a culture of solidarity according to the values of the Preventive System and the Social Doctrine of the Church. All services are carried out by an educational-pastoral community within a broader organic project inserted in the Salesian house according to the criteria of the Preventive System: reason, religion and loving-kindness.
