Family Centre for Education and Health Issues

Young mothers play with their babies in the family playgroup

Since May 2010 we have been working in the Family Floor in the House of Generations and offer a space for counselling, encounters and care. Our main focuses are: Family sponsorships, language and learning promotion as well as health promotion.

Our team

Your contact persons are trained pedagogues, social workers and health promotion specialists with many years of professional experience. The team includes the school social workers of the primary school August Hermann Francke, the employees of the youth club Treff im Quartier, the coordinators of the sports club SV Francke 08 and the child protection specialist of the Francke Foundations.

Our team is complemented by volunteers who are regularly trained and accompanied in their work by us. They support us in these areas: Family sponsorships, visiting service, newborn greetings, clothing store, language and learning promotion as well as the offers of the sports club.

Our partners

The Family Competence Centre for Education and Health is a recognised institution for family work/family education in the city of Halle (Saale) and represents the Francke Foundations in the Local Child Protection Network Halle. The institution supports the federal initiative "Frühe Hilfen" with preventive offers for families. The Family Competence Centre is supported by members of the Circle of Friends of the Francke Foundations.

For young people

With the Treff im Quartier (TiQ) we have created a space for the special needs of young people. Have a look!

Children grow up and outgrow their clothes. You don't have to throw them away. We take care of the distribution of clothes, toys and books. Please come on Mondays between 10 and 12 o'clock or by appointment to the family floor. Bring something used and well-preserved or choose something suitable. In doing so, you will not only support other families, you will also make an important contribution to protecting the environment.
