About the volunteering opportunity

Through the "WinGS" project, single parents receive support in finding accommodation and integration. The single parents currently live temporarily in mother-child houses and boarding houses or are threatened by homelessness. They have lost their home through separation, flight, etc. and are often left alone with several children without means or protection. In addition, many of them also have difficulties in understanding and a culture that is foreign to them. The single parents usually have between 1-4 children. Depending on their age, they attend kindergarten, school and after-school care or are still in the care of their parents. A feeling of security and to have arrived needs a home where staying is not in question. Only when this basis of existence exists single parents threatened by homelessness can regain a foothold in our society. With the help of the project and the voluntary support, the access to the affordable housing market and the renting of a flat should be made possible. The volunteers as well as the single parents are trained accordingly in advance. Furthermore, there is a regular exchange between the volunteers and the project coordination.

Your Tasks

We are looking for volunteers to help single mothers and fathers with advice and support in finding a suitable and affordable apartment, to help them with registration and necessary applications and, if necessary, to accompany them to appointments with the respective authorities. Furthermore, the single parents and their children are accompanied by the volunteers when they arrive in their new living environment.

What's needed

For this volunteering opportunity, advanced German skills are required.

You have a certain amount of life experience and patience, knowledge of dealing with authorities and forms, readiness, registration procedures and official procedures and requirements or can learn/comprehend them and explain them to single parents.
