ASPROS starts its activity with efforts and sacrifices in 1962, being one of the first entities, even at national level, which was instituted in the field of direct attention to people with intellectual disabilities.
In the course of these more than 56 years of work, ASPROS dedicates special attention to the "Integral Service" that it develops, which is efficiently treated and also, in a special way in the activity of "Residential Care". This speciality is developed in Casa Nostra in Sudanell and in the urban homes located in the city of Lleida.
In January 2005, ASPROS is constituted as a Foundation. The entity has always been committed to improving the quality of life of people with disabilities and their families. Its work in favor of intellectual disability has been extended over the years to other disabilities such as: physical disability and mental disorder, among others. ASPROS currently serves more than 500 people and their families.
ASPROS Foundation is a reference for the promotion of awareness actions towards mental disabilities and, above all, a pioneer in the implementation of programs aimed at promoting the social and labor insertion of this group.
Reception and Support Service: The Service attends to the demands of people in all stages of their lives and their families, listening to the needs and interests of people in order to offer them the service that can best accompany them and makes the corresponding follow-up. It coordinates all actions that are made to the entity aimed at families, promoting their involvement through cross-cutting projects and spaces for participation.
Residential Care Area - The objective and main activity developed by the area is the provision of a substitute service for the home, facilitating opportunities for independent living or covering a housing need. Within this area different services are offered depending on the needs:
- Specialized residences, the entity has three residences, two of them for people with disabilities who present behavioral alterations and require a specialized environment and professionals. And a third one for people with greater need of support.
- The Homes-Residences are the essential pillar of the Aspros Foundation's project and social commitment.

The Pre-labor Service is a social service, complementary to those already existing in the Social, Health and Labor Network, which serves people with disabilities derived from a mental illness who are motivated to start a process of training and labor rehabilitation.
The general objective is, through an individual rehabilitation program, to ensure that the person assisted acquires, recovers and maintains sufficient skills to enable him/her to be inserted and maintained in a supported work activity (special work center, insertion company) or an ordinary work activity.
How we do it
The intervention to reach this objective is carried out both at an individual level and from rehabilitative workshops, unpaid, in which we work with an active, participatory and individualized methodology, which will try to influence both the characteristics of the user and those of their family, social and work environment.
In these workshops, it is not so much about acquiring technical knowledge, but its main objective is to achieve basic work habits common to any job.
The Incorpora program is a labor intermediation program of "la Caixa" Banking Foundation.
It was launched in 2006, and since then it has done nothing but grow. It is present throughout the national territory, even in some foreign countries such as Poland.
Here in Lleida the program is represented by 10 social entities, of which Aspros Foundation is the coordinating entity, which leads the group Incorpora Lleida.
The main objective of the program is to provide employment opportunities for people who are unemployed, with special emphasis on groups in vulnerable situations, and / or at risk of social exclusion.
