Migration guidance for adults (MBE)

Since the immigration law came into force in January of 2005 there has been a uniform advisory service for migrants and late resettlers. The migration guidance for adults (MBE) ensures a nationwide basic offer of counseling. The “Haus der Kulturen” (house of cultures) offers the migration guidance for adults (MBE) as part of their activities in the migration social work.

Outreach parent work

Outreach parent work is when pedagogic specialists visit families. Through personal contact in a surrounding that is familiar to the family a trusting relationship can be built between the pedagogic specialists and the parents. This can then be used to make further support accessible.

Café Kumpel

Once a week male refugees and males who recently arrived in Germany meet at „Café Kumpel”. Café Kumpel focuses on the interests of the participants.

The project Café Kumpel tries to give refugees who had to leave their home country for different reasons the opportunity to talk to each other and show them long term options of making their everyday life diverse and interesting. One of the objectives of the meetings is showing educational opportunities, another is the interest related organization of leisure time.
