Outpatient Ambulance For Refugees And Their Families

Germany is one of the largest host countries for refugees. After numerous traumatic experiences in their home country, many refugees often also often go through arduous escape routes. In the last 20 years, CHILDREN FOR TOMORROW has been able to establish a unique therapeutic care of these refugee children and adolescents with the “Refugee outpatient service for children and adolescents and their families” in Hamburg. The multicultural and interdisciplinary 15-person team provides outpatient care for up to 500 children a year. The aim is to provide refugee children and adolescents with orientation in the country of exile, in addition to stabilizing their emotional world.
