Poverty and homelessness are fates that, blamelessly or culpably, can affect many. Poverty and homelessness are fates that, blamelessly or culpably, can affect many. During the day, there are communal or charitable drop-in centers, but after 10 p.m. they are usually closed. But it also needs a contact person for the night when it gets cold, when aggressiveness increases, social control fails, and isolated people become victims of violence.
The gutenachtbus closes this gap through private commitment. With the help of donations, vision:teilen and fiftyfifty have set up a Sprinter as a mobile dining and consulting room, which is also used to transport people in emergencies. The bus operates year-round and is escorted by volunteers under the direction of a social worker who understand the hardships of the homeless on the streets. With this low-threshold offer of help, the often marginalized fellow citizens are offered an evening meeting place where they are welcome and where a warm meal, clean clothes, and a good conversation are provided for them.
Especially in this very isolated Corona time, we think that the social offer in this marginal area is important. As in previous years, Dialoghaus, therefore, forgoes Christmas presents and supports the gutenachtbus. Together with the sponsors, we thank you for this support.
