Target group

The Streetwork team provides individuals who are homeless or living in precarious living situations with low-threshold, outreach-based support to help them gradually improve their physical and social well-being and health. The aim is to help these individuals to sustainably achieve a quality of life that allows them to live with dignity.

Focus area

This street work team focuses on the Ville Haute district of Luxembourg City. Two containers have been set up in a courtyard on Rue Willy Goergen. The containers function as a meeting point (social café) for individuals and groups who live on the streets. The street work teams also have an office here.
