Short- and long-term help
The homeless support (“Wohnungslosenhilfe kreuznacher diakonie”) offers short-term and long-term help for women and men whose special circumstances in life are connected to social difficulties.
Emergency accommodations and follow-up care are offered in the regions of Bad Kreuznach and Birkenfeld.
Another service in Bad Kreuznach is the “Café Bunt – Tagesaufenthalt, Notunterkunft, Beratungsstelle – für Frauen in Not” where women in distress can spend their day and receive counseling or stay overnight if they have nowhere else to go to. Also, streetwork is offered in Bad Kreuznach.
In Idar-Oberstein, streetwork and a place to stay during the day is offered by “Horizont” and “Idar-Obersteiner Tafel” ("Tafel" = non-profit organisation distributing food for people in need on a communal level).
