UtilDeco is the social insertion enterprise established by “Close to You” Foundation Romania (ADV), in 2008, as an employment solution for young people with disabilities, those who come from the child protection system or from families with problems.
Since 2002, the ADV Foundation has been running programs to facilitate the insertion of HIV-positive young people into the labor market (vocational therapy services, training courses and professional guidance).
The failure to hire these young people and the 2008 crisis set the zero moment when we decided to create jobs for them as an organization. This is how the UtilDeco brand was born, without realizing that what we do is a social business and a social economy model.
