Fundación Manos Tendidas is a charitable-assistance entity. The associates of the Foundation are mainly relatives of people with disabilities, industry professionals, volunteers and collaborating partners. Our main objective is to integrate people with physical and/or mental impairment in the socio-laboral environment. As a result, we promote a high quality of life for our beneficiaries and their families. We offer a specialised day care service for people with intellectual disabilities who, due to the nature of their condition, require specific treatment. Therefore, we provide individual attention, personal and social empowerment, rehabilitation and coexistence to those who, due to their characteristics, cannot stay at home all day. Once the incorporation into the labor market has taken place, the Foundation’s Multidisciplinary Team provides individual and personal monitoring until they fully adapt to the job position.
