From 2005 to 2008, the Oportunidades Project aimed to find innovative ways to reintegrate prisoners and ex-prisoners into society. One of the main problems identified, the absence of a family and housing structure in the return of these individuals to active life, led to the creation of the Casa de Transição, integrated in 2008 in the Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa, one of the promoters of this project. The mission, approach methodology and work processes of this facility, focused on monitoring the process of social reintegration after incarceration in a prison, which in 2012 began to have two housing spaces: Casa Oportunidades and the Casa Vida Ativa, the first aimed at individuals with the possibility of parole or at the end of their sentence but without a residential and socio-family environment, the second for people with a long path of institutionalization and in a situation of social vulnerability, thus preventing recidivism. This book is part of the Sebentas Social Action Collection, an editorial line dedicated to sharing knowledge acquired and consolidated through practice, in the awareness, however, that this knowledge is always under permanent construction and improvement.
