EINZELFALLHILFE

Project initiator:

Caritasverband Kinzigtal e.V., Diakonisches Werk im Evangelischen Kirchenbezirk Ortenau and Deutsches Rotes Kreuz Kreisverband Wolfach e.V.

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 [Einzelfallhilfe] where there is no other (state) help.

Project description:

The individual support project [Einzelfallhilfe-Projekt] lends a helping hand to people in need. There are no public offers of support in many crisis situations and bureaucratic hurdles often prevent people from accessing help in time – this is where individual support from Caritas, the Diakonisches Werk and the DRK comes in. The support is provided as required and is intended to help people help themselves. The people concerned are asked and encouraged to give their constructive input.

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.

Caritas
We are always there whenever help is needed.
