Field of work

As a non-profit organization we help and provide advice for refugees and migrants, who live in Essen. We give help for local integration and are connected to other networks, initiatives, „round tables“ and associations in Essen. We consider ourselves as an organization that works above party lines.

Our main field of work consists of giving advice about the asylum law and problems that occur bureaucratically.

On behalf of and with financial support by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia we provide consultations referring to the asylum procedure at the first-arrival-institution „EAE Overhammshof Essen“. Furthermore our work includes helping with complaints regarding the housing, medical and social treatment.

Our consulting offers are for free and granted by certain providers.
We would like to extend our consulting offer. Therefore we need financial support like donations or being an active or sustaining member of our organization.
