Family Home O.A.M.I.
A choice of love
Opening a Family Home for people with disabilities, in 1996, was a choice oflove of Msgr. Enrico Nardi, priest and founder and Giuseppe Merini, benefactor and OAMI member who donated the farmhouse to the association thinking about the future of his son,currently resident in the structure. Creating a day-time and residential community open to the territory, seemed like a dream but,thanks to some pioneers, the Casa Famiglia S. Antonio O.A.M.I was bom in an ancient farmhouse where guests can spend their days carrying out work.shops, leisure and recreational activities but, above all, receive stimuli aimed at breaking the monotony of time with the support and affectionate presence of friends, of volunteers and, with the support and professionalism of the staff operating within the structure.
Finally, families can succeed in giving an answer to the anguished question: "after me what will happen to my son?..."
It is thanks to the emotional relationships established, to the work. activities carried out in the various labora. tories,that it is possible to overcome isolation and create opportunities aimed at enhancing the person and achieving a lifestyle as autonomous and dignified as possible.
Tue Casa Famiglia S. Antonio O.A.M.I, a project of the Diocesan Caritas of Spoleto-Norcia, is a great re source for the entire Umbria Region and, in particular, for the Spoleto territory.
We ask everyone for a Choice of Love together with us to realize the dream by donating bricks that serve to enlarge the structure and therefore accommodate more disabled people.

What guests say
I was the first to cross the threshold of this house. Here I shared joys and sorrows with my family. I can't think of leaving this structure.
I attend the Day-time Center. I love working with wood very much, here I have the opportunity to put it into practice. Always staying at home made me sad and bored; now, the mere thought of coming to the Centre every day fills me with joy.
I have been living in this structure for a long time and I get along very well with my friends with whom I have a strong bond. I practice many activities, such as small household chores, but my favorites are taking care of the flowers and helping Michela (the educator) during the Creative Workshop.
