THE Marbella council has announced that it intends to reopen the Immediate Care Centre for homeless people in San Pedro Alcantara and it will be managed by the Red Cross.

The centre in Calle Fantasia was closed four years ago but according to the mayor Ángeles Muñoz there is a renewed need for a range of services in the town in order to help homeless people and it should be operational by February.

Until now, the main area of assistance for those in need of showers, laundry and breakfast has been in the premises of the HIV/AIDS charity Concordia which has been helping those with the infection and without, plus offering tests and advice.

Now the council is committing a total of €450,000 to the Red Cross to manage this centre and another in Marbella and it will offer clients the option to undertake laundry, have showers and food, as well as psychological attention or somewhere just to sit and rest during the day.
