The Resilis Foundation becomes part of the iSocial board
Today, October 6, the board of the iSocial Foundation has been extended with an eighth member social entity: the Resilis Foundation. For the first time, its CEO, Jordi Pascual, has taken part in the monthly meeting of the iSocial board, on behalf of this foundation, which last July approved the incorporation in iSocial.
The Resilis Foundation is a Girona-based entity born in 2006 that specializes in the management and development of projects, programs and services for the care of children and young people in a situation of exclusion, risk or serious difficulties. It currently has services and centers throughout Catalonia, and is linked to the Plataforma Educativa group. The Resilis Foundation takes its name from the concept of resilience, a term from physics and adapted to the social sciences that refers to an individual’s ability to develop optimally, despite the presence of destabilizing events and conditions of difficult life. Thus, Fundació Resilis wants to stimulate the resilient capacities of the population it serves, without forgetting the protagonist character of each individual in its history and on its way to an autonomous and full life.
With this incorporation, the entities that make up the iSocial board are now eight: Ampans, Associació Benestar Desenvolupament-ABD, Suport-Fundació Tutelar Girona, Fundació Família i Benestar Social, Grup ATRA, Fundació Joia, Fundació Catalana Síndrome de Down, and now also the Resilis Foundation.
