A Home for my Family

The project A Home for my Family is among the project interventions that characterize Intesa Sanpaolo's commitment to greater social cohesion and the reduction of inequalities; it borns with a view to identifying impact strategies that concretely meet people's needs, with the ambition to become system actions.

Together with the Maria Letizia Verga Onlus Committee in Monza, the Gerolamo Gaslini Foundation in Genoa and the Santobono Pausilipon Foundation in Naples, the Bank strengthens the reception system for families of sick and hospitalized children in long-term pediatric wards and for parents who, in order to guarantee the best care for their children, find themselves forced to move from their place of residence for long periods.

The project was started in hospitals where our educational program for long-stay child patients is already active with the opening of nurseries in the pediatric oncology wards, to allow sick children to continue to be children and not just sick. Now the project extends, basing that sense of continuity also on the proximity of the family unit.

So, with the collaboration of the Santobono Pausilipon Foundation, the Gerolamo Gaslini Foundation and the Maria Letizia Verga Onlus Committee, we thought of involving a large network of non-profit organizations already operating on the reception front, with the aim of consolidating and systematicising capacity receptive of the network itself.

A Home for my Family is the new Intesa Sanpaolo project which will, in fact, generate territorial poles of proximity which, with the commitment of all partners, will guarantee not only hospitality, but will make parents and their children feel less alone.
