What does the programme consist of?

This programme offers financial support if you have become a widow/widower with dependent children under the age of 18 or if you have assumed parental responsibility for an orphaned child. It is the result of Mrs Elena Gabriel (1926-2011) leaving part of her inheritance to Ufficio Pio for this purpose.


What will you be offered?  

  • Financial support to restore balance in the family, coping with the problems caused by the event that has affected you.
  • Particular attention is paid to the care and education of your children, with support for them to achieve financial independence.
  • Psychological support.
  • Services you are free to use, including traineeships to improve your opportunities to enter the job market, as well as opportunities for your children aged between 6 and 14 years old to get together, have fun and integrate.
