Casa da União, 34 years of Beneficence
This February 10th, the Beneficent Association Casa da União (“House of Union”) (Brasilia-DF) completed 34 years since its creation. The Casa da União-DF has the affiliates of the União do Vegetal who attend the General Headquarters of the Center as well as the núcleos Gaspar, Estrela Matutina, Canário Verde, Luz do Oriente, Príncipe Teceu and Rei Hoasqueiro as collaborators. It was the first entity of its kind connected to the Centro Espírita Beneficente União do Vegetal (Beneficent Spiritist Center União do Vegetal).
Presently, there are 30 beneficent entities connected to núcleos and administrative regions of the UDV. As with the Casa da União-DF, these entities voluntarily provide social, educational, medical, financial and cultural services to members of the Center and to the communities of regions close to where the núcleos are located. More than 80,000 people have been served throughout Brazil by the service entities of the Center.

For its long and wide-reaching work of beneficence, the UDV received from the Brazilian government, on July 22nd, 1999, the Federal title of Utilidade Pública Federal (“Federal Public Utility”) title granted to associations with the exclusive objective to serve society in general–that is renewed annually (learn more). The núcleos of the União do Vegetal and its beneficent regional and local entities have also received titles of “Public Utility” from seven state governments and eleven mucipal governments.
