Other advisory services

For Giessen:

Parents helping Parents / Eltern helfen Eltern e.V.:

We are a non-profit organisation that promotes leisure time provisions for young people and youth welfare. Since the foundation of Eltern helfen Eltern e.V. in 1979, our declared goal has been to help mothers and fathers bring up and care for their children. One important task is helping parents find appropriate childcare or support in emergencies, for example when a parent falls ill. We arrange for childminders, babysitters and nannies who can look after children on a short or long-term basis. Various playgroups and the Minikindergarten provide childcare on an hourly basis and give parents an opportunity to get to know each other.

Our annual programme of courses, lectures and various discussion groups provide parents with information on all kinds of family-related subjects. What's more, the organisation provides support not only for parents - it also runs a youth helpline with around 30 voluntary members of staff and consultation hours every day.

Eltern helfen Eltern e.V. relies on the voluntary support of members and friends of the association. We are always pleased to receive feedback about our services and provisions, and both new members and suggestions are welcome!

You can visit our office from Monday to Friday between 9.00 and 12.00 noon if you wish to register, make suggestions or ask questions.

We focus on social, educational and psychosocial issues.

The courses give you new ideas, encourage exchange, promote social contacts, provide help and support, inspire news ways of thinking and acting, offer a break from everyday life, give life a new rhythm and are good for body and soul!
