verändert leben

” ‘It is easy to find dirt in the other. Be the one to find the gold.’

Under this motto I myself am part of bärenstark Erfurt. Children should have the chance to discover their own abilities and strengths”.

Anna Schnitzer, former head of bärenstark Erfurt

The vision of bärenstark Erfurt

bärenstark Erfurt is an offer of the open child and youth welfare service. On the basis of the Christian image of man we want to support children, strengthen families and bring them into contact with the church.

We work in a prefabricated housing area and social hotspot, the Roter Berg. Here the unemployment rate, school drop-out rate and juvenile delinquency have increased.

Through our offers we want to give children a perspective on life and work.
