The Cooperativa Progetto Itaca Onlus was born in june 2015 from the evolution of the Associazione Progetto Itaca Onlus, active on the ground of Lecco since 2014 and aimed to face the more and more important request of action regarding the continuous and unpredictable inflow coming of non-EU citizens to Italy. It is composed by skilled workers, prepared both professionally and humanly: educators, operators, psychologists, mediators, office staff and managers create a team of colleagues that work together on the management of asylum seekers on various levels, bureaucratic and humanitarian. It manages, according to the SPRAR model, asylum seeker’s reception centers taking care of all the services connected, and, whenever possible, adopting procedures to achieve the refugee status. Among the centers managed by Progetto Itaca there’s also a reception and sorting center that is responsible for the first temporary reception.
