Today we are going to a location of the Volksbond in Amsterdam West. 50 ex-homeless adults live in this facility. They are people with often complex problems (psychiatric, addiction, mild intellectual disability). At the Volksbond they offer care and personal guidance. The main goal is that they eventually become independent, and that they actively participate in society.
We will make a hotdog lunch and eat it together with the residents. Afterwards we will organize a bingo! Fun guaranteed! The target group is sometimes challenging but very special!
To be able to participate in this project, you must be 20 years of age or older and be confident.
