Esperança is a facebook group of like-minded individuals who want to make a change. The project organises people to volunteer in neighbourhoods of Barcelona in various ways, for example, handing out food and clothes. They go every Saturday and Sunday evening on two central routes around Barcelona. If you are interested, sign up here https://goo.gl/5L1GbS to dedicate your time to this cause.
This company states that they are the “community that cares about stimulating the minds of homeless people so they can play an active role in making the world a better place.” In other words, the company believes that by giving homeless people professional support in addition to a place to stay for a year and a half, you are creating the chance for people to get back on their feet.
One can volunteer by offering up professional support in any expertise. Alternatively, you can donate money that would go towards providing homes for the homeless.

If you can’t commit to a certain time every week but you still want to help the homeless population, think about organising your own group of volunteers and help out in anyway you can: a simple chat with someone living on the street might show you how you can help.
