Social Integration Centre ‘PRO DOMO’

Post-penitentiary Half-way House


Po Domo is a half-way house run for homeless persons released from penitentiary isolation who, due to circumstances, cannot or should not return to their previous home environment. Our Centre offers 8 rotation places for males, where they can stay for up to 3 months, with a possibility of prolonging the stay to 6 months.

Pro Domo inhabitants are obliged to undertake employment and to participate in therapy, pursuant to individual contracts. The Centre offers regular therapeutical and psychoeducational sessions, aiming to prevent relapse into addiction, as well as helping build the participants` motivation, define life goals, all the while providing support in putting them to life.

Inhabitants may at any time consult a lawyer, professional employment advisor, psychologist and addiction therapist.

Pro Domo is a safe haven where you can rediscover your place in the real world, under the watchful eye of specialits: find a job, renew family contacts, find a specialist support in your fight with addiction, discover your passion and learn how to spend your free time in a fruitful manner.
