'10 years have passed since the spring of COVID 19 and today we visit one of the first EICIs: Intergenerational, Collaborative and Integrated Facilities, which emerged as a housing, healthcare and health response after the crisis of that year. A Hub of attention, mediation and public-private management, open to the neighborhood. 120 people between the ages of 18-98 from very diverse groups coexist here. All of them collaborate in the management of individual and collective needs and have established alliances with more than 100 merchants and entrepreneurs in the neighborhood. In addition, from here, in conjunction with the health center, Comprehensive Home Care is coordinated for just over 1,500 vulnerable people who live at home. This project supposes the symbiotic and collaborative union of social, educational, health, welfare and housing policies of the city '.
