LIVING SPACE FOR CHILDREN

Project initiator:

a.l.s.o. Schwäbisch Gmünd e. V.

For over 30 years, the social enterprise a.l.s.o. e.V. has been offering people in Schwäbisch Gmünd and the Ostwürttemberg region new perspectives and developing solutions to improve living situations and realise positive prospects and opportunities.

Project description:

Single parents and families in precarious living situations often live in flats with small and unfavourably cut rooms and unhealthy housing conditions. They also rarely have the financial means to carry out necessary repairs.

Numerous studies, such as the World Vision Children’s Study and the Bertelsmann Study Children’s Worlds+, prove the connection between the risk of poverty or concrete poverty, as well as inadequate housing and disadvantages in child development. The project of the a.l.s.o. Schäbisch Gmünd e. V. aims to improve problematic and unhealthy housing situations in the city and region.

Children at risk of poverty live cramped and unhealthy lives. We can change that.
