Residence Brodolini 24 is at the same time a residence and a temporary social housing project in Via Brodolini in Cinisello Balsamo (MI).
The doors were opened in October 2011 by La Cordata. The project expands the right budget temporary housing offered by the Cooperative, a range of beds and accommodation at accessible prices alongside integrated services for developing residential autonomy.
The residence offers a total of 46 beds in triple, double and single rooms and these come with internet, use of the kitchen and common areas, weekly change of bedlinen and daily cleaning.
Brodolini 24 has a mix of inhabitants: temporary workers, students, single parent families, residents from the surrounding area who turn to us because of a temporary crisis such as separation, eviction or a social housing waiting list. Apart from these temporary guests who normally stay in the Residence for from 1 to 6 months, there are 4 apartments for young people from 25 to 35 years of age, young couples, working students, singles who have moved out on their own for the first time and these are the focus of the socio-cultural activities.
