Anybody can suddenly find themselves in need, for many different reasons. To prevent people from ending up in difficulty and slipping through the net as a result of crisis situations that are often no fault of their own, such as accidents, illness or twists of fate, Caritasverband Kinzigtal e.V. and Diakonisches Werk im Evangelischen Kirchenbezirk Ortenau offer unbureaucratic support at short notice for individual cases where there is no other (state) help.

Project description:

The consequences of the Covid-19 crisis are not only serious in terms of health and economic policy. The uncertainty for the many people who already had to make do with scarce resources or lived at the subsistence level before the Covid-19 crisis is great during the pandemic. Many are afraid that they will not be able to feed themselves and their families with the short-time allowance or that they will lose their jobs altogether. The emergency aid arranged through the NEUMAYER STIFTUNG will top up the social benefits granted.

Diakonisches Werk
The organisation Kirchliche Allgemeine Soziale Arbeit (individual support) opens up spaces where people can find clarity about questions, uncertainties or contradictions in life. It picks up on the skills of the people seeking advice and enables them to make changes to their own situation in life. It provides support, information and practical assistance. The advisors have methods and skills for establishing contact based on trust and for improving the ability to act of the people seeking advice.

We are always there whenever help is needed.
