At this first moment, the focus of Viver Melhor are 450 families who live at kilometer 20 of the Via Anchieta, in São Bernardo do Campo. “Many times we remove the families, put them in other houses and, many times, they sell what we gave and they return to the risk area. Understanding this difficulty, we looked for an alternative. We have an innovative program that seeks to regularize and make investments. Make these families able, even because of the pandemic.” The registration of the first families has already been done.
