Family care; application for funding

Family care helps to support families in special emergency and crisis situations and to avoid the out-of-home placement of children. The sponsors of family care stations can receive a grant within the framework of project funding.



The purpose of the funding is to facilitate the continuation of family care stations and to ensure a nationwide supply of qualified professionals, including through binding forms of cooperation.


The object of the subsidy is the expenses of the family care stations for family care. The qualified specialist takes over the care and upbringing of the children as well as the care of the household.


Recipients of funding are associations of independent welfare organizations and their affiliated organizations, non-profit foundations as well as private providers, provided that they are responsible for family care stations and employ qualified personnel there.

Eligible expenses
