The Organization

Rodelillo Foundation, or Fundación Rodelillo, is a private institution of civil society which has forged a model of social co-construction to help families strengthen themselves as the basic unit of society and to overcome social vulnerabilities. Our organization is a highly effective, replicable and internationally-recognized Model of Social Intervention and Family Entrepreneurship helping to empower poor Chilean families to take charge of their lives and bootstrap themselves out of poverty.

Rodelillo has created, put to use and promoted a social vision and a social model by means of which some 45,000 families have succeeded in strengthening the bonds of intra-family affection, reduced their social vulnerabilities, completed market-demanded training, created or found employment, overcame poverty, and many became homeowners.

Rodelillo facilitates these positive changes through a 14-month psycho-social companionship designed to help families to become protagonists of their opportunities, lives and destinies. Our Model has been successfully helping families to become self-reliant, self-sustaining and independent for almost 30 years.

Rodelillo´s families elaborate a family project with the goals they wish to achieve and, through an integral methodology, we accompany them for 12 to 18 months, with a multidisciplinary team of professionals, such as, among others, social workers, psychologists, lawyers, business administrators and educators.

Rodelillo’s Model includes the following dimensions in the support process of each family:

Family Project
Areas of support
  • Relationships within the family
  • Habitability and access to housing
  • Promotion of a healthy and preventive way of life
  • Participation of the parents in the children’s education
  • Family economic situation and family incomes

Testimonies

Stories of achievement

“Rodelillo es lo mejor que nos ha pasado. Para mí fue una ayuda muy grande, tanto para los niños, las chiquillas (hijas) y para mí también. Yo esperaba el día jueves para ir, porque sentía como que me desahogaba, sentía protección… no sé me sentía, súper bien. Se me pasaron casi todas las penas y además, como casi siempre tenía que batallar con los niños, me sentí apoyada en esa tarea. Los niños volvían de allá felices, por eso estoy agradecida del Centro y de toda la gente que había ahí. Lo bueno es que conversábamos distintas cosas de la familia, una se sentía en confianza, sin que nadie criticara nada. Al contrario se escuchaba y opinaba, pero nadie atacaba a nadie”.

“Yo estoy bien contento y agradecido de lo que recibimos en Rodelillo. La familia completa estaba necesitando de un apoyo como el que acá nos ofrecieron. Vi como de a poco fuimos surgiendo en distintas cosas, Nosotros con mi mujer estábamos en dificultades, por distintas razones ambos estábamos como oprimidos por nuestra situación: falta de ánimo, de plata, comunicación y entendimiento.”
