ART AND WORK SOCIAL CO-OPERATIVE
COALA was established in 1997 and it set out to tear down the boundaries of social distress.
Its main goal is the education and integration into the labour market of disadvantaged people from different age groups and segments.
Actually, it has planned and developed ad hoc services for those who have been dealing with burdensome situations (such as lonely and abandoned elderly people or individuals with sensory disabilities) by providing specific job-placement projects. However, it has expanded to a wider public by offering new services.
Its most important collaboration is the one with the UICI (the Italian Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired) of Trieste, which has let COALA to carry out activities to support those with sensory disabilities.
In the last years, COALA has been working together with different private and social entities, organizations, and institutions. It has carved out a still expanding/growing role/share in the local services market.
