Speedy assistance at the right moment

Our wohnschirm project

Are you experiencing difficult circumstances? Do you have financial problems? With the wohnschirm project, we offer support for tenants in crisis situations.

Because sometimes everything happens at once. Sickness, unemployment or the loss of a partner: a stroke of fate can land a person in social hardship. With the ‘wohnschirm’ project, we want to provide assistance as quickly and non-bureaucratically as possible.

Assistance available within the scope of the wohnschirm project

For example, we will pay for your move to a cheaper apartment or for much needed furniture. Sometimes we can even help by providing good used furniture from our own properties. The welfare of the children involved is particularly close to our hearts. As a means of supporting them, we will subsidise, for example, school fees, sports activities and music lessons.

Every tenant can apply for financial assistance. Applications are examined on a quarterly basis by a five-member panel. Our booklet with application form is available at any of our service centres. Our staff will be pleased to advise you.
