Mel Acolhe offers guidance and legal, psychological, socio-assistance and medical care to women in vulnerable situations.

With attention, affection and adequate training, the Company offers qualification for the insertion of these new professionals in the job market, training qualified people to integrate the teams of the Company’s units and to serve the public. Students are selected with the help of the Jô Clemente Institute, formerly APAE-SP, a pioneer organization in Brazil in promoting the health of people with intellectual disabilities, supporting their social inclusion, defending their rights and producing and disseminating knowledge. In partnership with UDiversidade, the Company created the training course in customer service aimed at people with intellectual disabilities.

In addition, training is offered to current employees and partners to receive the Company’s new professionals.
