After the Easter break, readings aloud and children's activities are returned to the "Giovanni Arpino" public library in Bra. Saturday 7 April 2018 there is the second event of the cycle "From book to smile" with the doule of Mondo doula.

On Monday 19 March the 7 Home Emergency Convention was signed. The project, now in its seventh edition, is promoted by the CRC Foundation in collaboration with 18 Municipalities of the province of Cuneo (in Alba, Borgo San Dalmazzo, Boves, Bra, Busca, Caraglio, Cervasca, Ceva, Cuneo, Dronero, Fossano, Mondovì, Racconigi, Saluzzo, Savigliano, Sommariva del Bosco and Verzuolo was added this year Villanova Mondovì), the managing bodies of social welfare services, the Caritas of the respective territories and the South Piedmont ATC.


For the 2018 edition, the project is divided into 2 measures:


- Measure 1 (550 thousand euros budget) for the prevention of evictions. The local commissions for the housing emergency, set up in each participating municipality, will allocate the funds directly to the owners of the housing - with 3 possible cuts: 850, 1.300 and 1.700 euro - after signing the Solidarity Pacts;
- Measure 2 (100 thousand euros budget) for the renovation of social housing buildings owned by the bodies constituting the local commissions or owned by the Territorial Agency for the Home (ATC) Piedmont South. The goal is to recover housing units, making them promptly available for families already on the waiting list.


Until now, the Emergenza Casa project has made it possible to allocate 6,7 million for the contrast of the housing emergency, with the signing of over 2800 Solidarity Pacts (519 only in the 2017 edition). The solidarity pacts are agreements signed with the approval of the local Commission for the housing emergency of the Municipality of residence, which commit the owner, against economic recognition, not to evict the tenant for at least 6 months after the signing, to favor the stipulation of contracts a
agreed fee (110 new contracts signed in 2017), with economic benefits for both the tenant and the owner.
