We provide support for children and young people who are disadvantaged because of a difficult social environment, severe illness, or mental or physical disability. Our aim is to foster long-term empowerment for them so that they can lead independent, fulfilling lives.
It was with this in mind that the Hoffmann Group Foundation was set up. In Peißenberg, Germany, we support the ORANGE HOUSE, a centre which develops and provides services for children and young people who come from difficult family backgrounds. Its concept is founded on the triple pillars of shared activities, therapy and readying its service recipients for the professional world, with a focus on providing courses that are designed to give them experience and build confidence in their own strengths and abilities. A workshop, indoor riding arena and other generously sized therapy rooms create space for therapeutic horseback riding; experiential education; art, music and dance therapy; and much more besides.
Inspired by the success that this creative and therapy centre has achieved, we are currently planning to set up the second ORANGE HOUSE, this time in Bremen. Not only that, but we also lend our support to the LEBENSRÄUME project – translating roughly as LIVING SPACE, this provides day care facilities for children and their mentally ill parents – plus the Grundmühle initiative for children with emotional and behavioural problems, located in the town of Hann. Münden.
