The Little House of Mensajeros

This is a center that helps families in vulnerable situations to reconcile family and work life. It is, located in the neighborhood of Lavapies, in the heart of Madrid. We accompany children while their primary caregivers are unable to be with them. Furthermore, we offer comprehensive support to families who need it in collaboration with other projects within the organization and with the Social Services of the Madrid City Council. The center organization is based on child-friendly pedagogies, where the child is the protagonist and the environment is adapted to his or her needs.

This projects covers two age and time bands:

  •  Mornings at La Casita, children from 0 to 3 years old, from 9:00 am to 16:00 pm
  •  Evenings at La Casita: children from 3 to 12 years old, from 17:00 to 19:30 pm



We run two Emergency Centers for women, alone or with children, victims of gender-based violence and in situations of vulnerability.

We seek to provide urgent protection, offering psychological and social attention to contribute to their empowerment and social reintegration.

Residences and Senior Centers

The Church of San Antón is a social center for people in need in the center of Madrid. Since 2015, it has provided solutions to all those in need of spiritual, pastoral, social, medical, legal, social, listening or food assistance.

Due to the pandemic, it started to close at night and set up a covid protocol system that is still in place today.  

Its main courses of action are the following:

1 – Pastoral Activities:

Masses are celebrated every day and also streamed at The chapel of the Most High is always open for prayers. The San Antón Solidarity Basket is filled with donations from people who help us and is emptied by those who come to ask for food. Awareness campaigns are carried out: help to the neighbors provided by our volunteers; donations for menstrual poverty or products for children and babies. San Antón is always open to anyone that wants to collaborate or to ask for help.

2 – Social Intervention

Daily, we coordinate our activities with the local social services to help people in need of shelter to sleep. We also provide hairdressing services (“Pelo Bus”) and showers.

3 – Activities to ensure the right to food

Diariamente brindamos el desayuno a más de 150 personas en situación de calle o soledad, con el apoyo de voluntarios y voluntarias.

Durante el 2020, el proyecto se tuvo que readaptar a la situación sanitaria y los desayunos se entregan para consumir en el exterior junto a un café caliente.

Los desayunos se ofrecen a diario y sin cita previa de 7:15 h a 8:30 h. De lunes a viernes en Plaza General Vara de Rey 9 y los sábados,  domingos y festivos en C/ Hortaleza 63 (Madrid)



This project was launched in 2020 to reinforce our commitment with families at risk of poverty aggravated by the crisis by COVID-19.

We hand emergency solidarity food baskets and provide accompaniment, seeking to find the most appropriate solution in each case, working along with other entities.


This Solidarity Restaurant has been operating since 2016 with the main goal of dignifying people’s right to food.

With the support of volunteers, we offer daily dinners in a family and relaxed atmosphere. Due to the pandemic, dinners are offered to take away.


This is a housing service for people in situation of social-residential exclusion and homelessness. It offers a personalized comprehensive intervention to reverse this situation. Currently, in Madrid, we have 12 homes for different profiles:

  • Home for men.
  • Home for women in situations of gender-based violence and vulnerability.
  • Home for autonomous elderly people.
  • Home destined to Single-Parent Families with a capacity for three families.
  • 3 homes for families at risk of social exclusion.
  • 5 homes, named “Housing First”, for people that have been living on the street.
  • Emergency home for people under an urgent situation.

Cathedral of Justo Social Centre

The Cathedral of Justo Social Centre, in Mejorada del Campo, Madrid, is a building built by a single man, Justo Gallego, with no architectural training nor construction experience, in honor of the Virgin Mary. It is a building, initially thought as a chapel, that has become a Cathedral, which has been under construction for more than 60 years. It is a pioneering example of sustainability as he has used a lot of waste and recycled materials. Praised by experts and architects, the MOMA museum in New York dedicated an exhibition to him in 2006.

Now, together with Mensajeros de la Paz, we wish to finish his work, a dream come true, for it to become a place of peace and welcome for praying, to receive all people: those who are believers and those who are not, those who need help, those who are forgotten, those who are lonely; to become a meeting place for different religions, a small field hospital, a solidarity house for sharing.

With your contribution you are helping those who need it most
