Since May 2015, DFV Thuringia has taken over the social care in a shared accommodation for refugees. Single people and families who have fled war, political persecution or social constraints find protection and accommodation there. Taking over social care is one of our contributions to promoting integration and enabling people from different cultures to live together peacefully in their sensitive living situation.

Our social workers are available to the residents as initial contact persons. Immediately after their arrival, they provide new residents with orientation and assistance for living together. They support them in settling in, dealing with everyday challenges and adapting to the new socio-cultural and social conditions, and help with health problems such as psychological stress. They act as mediators between the residents and the 'outside world' and accompany them with comprehensive offers of help.

The social workers Danny Stolle and Ansgar Skulme are supported by Alayham Lutfi (BFD) as well as volunteers/patrons and interns.

In the project "Gartenkultur-Kulturgarten" (Garden Culture Culture Garden), our social worker Juliane Heinz is looking forward to the active cooperation of volunteers interested in gardening! This project is funded by the German Postcode Lottery.

In the project " Sport, Spiel & Kultur - Integration pur“ (Sport, Play & Culture - Pure Integration), we want to develop and jointly implement appropriate offers with and for residents of the shared accommodation and residents of the surrounding area. The project is funded by the Thuringian Ministry for Migration, Justice and Consumer Protection.

In view of the Corona situation, both projects focus on the extended use of the garden and other outdoor activities.

You are welcome to support the work in the shared accommodation with monetary donations, donations of any kind (see below!) or through voluntary work - any help is most welcome!

Our team will be happy to answer any questions you may have!

In cooperation with the Paritätischer Wohlfahrtsverband Thüringen, we are working with our project "Menschen stärken Menschen" (People Strengthen People) to initiate and strengthen sponsorships and volunteer work to support refugees in Erfurt and Gera. This project is made possible by funding from the BMFSFJ.
