Rights and resources for people with housing and social difficulties. 

who we are

KLIK e.V. is a charitable aid association helping homeless people or individuals at risk of homelessness in Berlin. The focus of our services are young homeless people aged between 18 and 26 years and homeless intra-EU migrants. In 2012, the team of the “Klik” contact point for “the street youth” founded the same-named association to provide reliable assistance and support programmes for young homeless intra-EU migrants in Berlin. Qualified professionals and volunteers of the multi-lingual team at KLIK e.V. are fully committed to the issues of those seeking advice.

What we do

The reasons for homelessness are diverse but they always indicate a resources loss spiral. The access to social assistance for homeless people or individuals at risk of homelessness who are not German citizens and/or who have stayed in Berlin for a short time yet or even undocumented is blocked in multiple ways.

Our primary task is to reduce the material poverty of those seeking advice by helping them to access social welfare benefits and by providing job search assistance. However, the orientation on the material poverty is not enough in overcoming homelessness.

We at KLIK e.V. want to help the addressees of our work to pursue their interests and to participate in society.

Referring to the reasons and impacts of homelessness, there are three areas of particular importance in our work. First, we find it important to improve the financial basis of our addressees. Second, if required, we assist in handling critical events/situations that have contributed to the loss of housing. Third, it is about the lasting improvement of addressees’ situation and its stabilisation. Considering that, we promote socio-political and social assistance.

On this background, KLIK e.V. operates a Contact and Counselling Centre for people with housing and social difficulties in Berlin Mitte, oriented on the needs of young homeless people. There are showers, washing machines, a cooking facility and an internet cafe. The centre provides social and socio-educational counselling and support in the German, English and Polish language. Our social workers counsel young homeless people in handling the immediate challenges of their everyday life as well as in dealing with authorities and service providers.

By means of our additional lifeworld- and empowerment-oriented programmes and services, we are constantly committed to increasing their opportunities for participation.

where we are going

We see it as our responsibility to contribute to the improvement of the social infrastructure for people with housing and social difficulties. We support political initiatives aiming at improving the framework conditions of the help system. We want to contribute to making it possible to all people in Berlin to have access to appropriate housing, social help services and health care.

Based on the representation of the rights of our addressees and the presentation of their problematic situation to the public, we want to achieve recognition of their problems as socially caused and conditioned ones, which translates into a socio-political assumption of responsibility and the subsequent financial support of aid programmes aimed at addressing these problems.

In specific terms, our aim is to make the addressees of our work visible in the societal perception, to inform about their problematic situation and to point out the social conditions causing their difficulties.
