Lar de Acolhimento Temporário is a halfway house, which is subsidized by Social Welfare Bureau and is operated by Caritas Macao. We offer temporary accommodation service for rehabilitated persons who have difficulties in living.
Our dormitory occupies an area of about 3000 square feet and is with 20 beds. Besides basic facilities for daily life, there are computer equipment, wireless network, library space, etc. In addition, social workers on duty also provide counselling service and organise regular activities.
With a comfortable accommodation for temporarily stay, our service users can pay more attention to plan for the future and reintegration into society.
We aim to facilitate rehabilitated persons' reintegration into society through counselling and rehabilitation activities, thereby reducing the chance of re-offending and achieving social harmony.
