Quienes somos



La Asociación OCREM surge en 1997 por la situación en que se encuentra en aquel momento algunas usuarias con trastorno dual, enfermas mentales, etc que se encuentran en la calle y no se ajustan al perfil de los albergues en aquel momento, con una atención fundamentalmente asistencial y poco técnica. En ese momento un grupo de técnicos (psicólogas, trabajadores sociales, etc) que estábamos trabajando en los albergues decidimos crear la Asociación para poder ayudar a todas aquellas que se encuentran en esta o parecido situación, planteando un proyecto de intervención integral para este colectivo (Proyecto de Investigación de Centro de Día para personas con Trastorno Dual; Subvencionado por la Consejería de Asuntos Sociales). Además del Centro de Día, se comenzó un "Proyecto de Acercamiento en la zona centro de Granada" para conocer de cerca la situación de aquellos usuarios que se encontraban en la calle y no acudían a los albergues, este proyecto era subvencionado por la Consejería de Salud.

En 1999 se produce la apertura de la "Casa de Acogida de Mujeres OCREM" mediante un Convenio de Colaboración con el Excmo. Ayuntamiento de Granada para la Atención a las Personas sin Hogar", renovándose desde entonces anualmente hasta la fecha. Este convenio se amplió en 2002 con la creación del "Piso de Normalización de Mujeres" , en 2003 con la apertura de la "Casa Familiar" y en 2010 con el "Piso de Tutelaje Residencial".

Otros proyectos que gestiona la Asociación estan relacionados con la potenciación del voluntariado y la promoción de la salud pública, en concreto con aquellas personas en grave situación de exclusión social y que ejercen la prostitución y aquellas otras que padecen VIH/SIDA.


            The Association Ocrem (non religion organization) emerges in 1997 for the need of some users who are in that moment with dual disorder, mental illnesses, etc. and are in the street, and don´t adjust at the lodging´s profile in that moment, with an attention mainly welfare but little technical. In this moment a group of technician (psychologies, social worker, etc.) that we were working in the lodging area decided to create the Association, to be able to help to all this persons who are in this or other situation, by raising a project of an integral intervention for this group (Investigation´s project of a Day Care Centre for persons with dual disorder; subsidized by the Ministry of Social Affairs of the Junta de Andalucía). In addition to the Day Care Centre, began a "Project of Approaching in the center of Granada" to know closely the situation of those users that were on the street and don´t go to the lodging, this project was subsidized by the Ministry of Health of the Junta de Andalucía.

In 1999 takes place the opening of the "Women's Refuge OCREM" by an Agreement of Collaboration with the Honorable City Hall of Granada for the Attention of the Homeless", renewing it to the present day. This agreement was expanded in 2002 with the creation of the "Women Normalization Flat" and in 2003 with the opening of the "Family House". Other projects managed by the Association are:

"Agreement of collaboration with the organization that help the women who practice the prostitution in Andalusia and the Ministry of health" since 2004.

"Prevention Project and fight against the HIV/AIDS in homeless women" since 1997.

"Projects to promote the volunteering" since 2002 by the Home Office.



The basic steps we follow in the city of Granada are:

Woman´s Refuge: “Immediately care”

The coverage of the basic needs, recovery of the basic habits, emotional stabilization, etc. We seek for a first stabilization, promoting an environment as close as possible to a home.

The limits of the stay are marked according to the women demand, the characteristics of her personality, her previous history of social care, the motivation to change, etc.

This rating is established by the social worker in the COAST and the social worker of OCREM.

Women normalization flat: “Rehabilitative care”

It´s established an "individualized working plan" agreed with the women. The priority objective is looking firstly for the equilibrium and the personal stability: emotional, mental, behavioral and relational. Once obtained this, is intended to prevent possible failures in the search and maintenance of a work when they have failed previously harmonize their expectations, their capabilities, and its past history.

It is a phase of personal and individual reconstruction, a space of autonomy regulated by women themselves along with the technicians, this phase would have containment times, control and relationship with external systems to the own house, and will be characterized for being as close as possible to a standard context for the daily life.

Family house

Refuge services for families with children that, permanently or punctually, lack of housing and don´t have their basic needs covered. The maximum time of staying is three months, depending on the Plan of work set that is established with the family and with the COAST/OCREM technicians or in turn with the community social services, etc.

The refuge service is carried out 24 hours a day, except in the morning from Monday to Friday (business days) in which COAST is in charge of those demands, by sending the families to the house´s refuge.

This resource has as aim to provide the families with a temporally home, with the propose that against any possible problem the family remain together and don´t separate minors from the family circle, avoiding possible interfamilial mismatches or Family dysfunction.

The Family House is targeted to one-parent families or two-parent families with minors, because of some transitory problems of social, economic or psychology nature, lack temporally of an accommodation; preserving the family by means of a specific and integrated intervention that allows the acquisition and generalization of guidelines that suppress factors of risk that might lead to the minors´ vulnerability, so that the family works in a constant and suitable way.
