The risks of intra-family violence, abuse or neglect increase when there is economic precariousness, lack of access to basic services, few family and institutional support networks, added to low educational levels.
Lack of access to public transport and / or payment of per diem to travel to the Profam Urbano headquarters, cause the desertion of the families most in need of the Service. This in addition to the distrust of being cared for outside of their community.
