In January 2022, the association arcus opened a Familljenhaus in our municipality. The Familljenhaus Differdange is a local and regional competence center for families and adolescents.
What does the Familljenhaus offer families?
The Familljenhaus Differdange is a local and regional competence center for families and young people. Every Familljenhaus in many parts of the country are designed to be close to families, children and young people, and each has services that can be provided at their premises or also at home. The Familljenhaus Differdange supports and accompanies families, children and adolescents in their development and answers questions related to situations in their daily lives.
What are the different services offered by the Familljenhaus?
Family support (“Assistance familiale”)
The family support service works closely with families or young people who need help and who have questions related to everyday life. The service aims to strengthen the resources of each family member, support stability and promote the skills of each family member.
Family assistance (“Aide familiale”)
The family assistance service offers families and people under 65 years of age short-term or periodical help with household tasks in case of illness, disability or other unforeseen events in life.
The Berodungsdéngscht service offers psychological or psychotherapeutic support to children, young people and their families who are experiencing difficulties of all kinds. Some of them are the result of traumatic events, others are the result of significant life experiences. In individual or family counselling sessions, you will be supported in finding individual and appropriate solutions to your problems.
Foster care (“Placement familial”)
The aim of the foster care service is to provide children with a suitable, stable and structured place to live in a foster family, which enables them to live with dignity, and to advise and support the reference persons, in particular the foster families and parents, by helping them to strengthen and use their individual resources and skills so that the fostered children can develop under the best possible conditions. The service also selects, trains and prepares foster families.
