These installations are owned by the Avilés Municipality and operated and managed by Grupo 5 and works directly with the residents of the region to create new approaches in addressing the most fundamental needs of the homeless population. Among other activities and resources, they try to provide shelter to as many individuals as possible.

    The Cultural Factory is a multidisciplinary arts centre, located in the building of a former shirt factory, built in 1950, for the development of the textile industry. It was in 2007 that the works of the Cultural Factory began to open its doors, depending on the Avilés Municipal Culture Foundation, which gives it its annual operating budget. The primary objective of the Culture Factory is to bring the entire population of the region of Avilés closer to the culture of both the region and Asturias. This non-profit public organization has as its target audience children, youth, adults, the elderly, people with learning disabilities and people with disabilities. It should be noted that there is great work being done on the part of the Factory in bringing people with disabilities closer to culture in order to achieve greater socialization of these individuals in society.
