Integration and refugee aid

The integration of people with a migration history has a long tradition in the district of Hohenlohe. This website offers an overview of the most important points of contact and responsibilities to facilitate participation in everyday life and society.

Refugee aid can be seen as an independent area of volunteer work. Whether as a part of a circle of helpers or through a personal sponsor, volunteers help refugees in their daily lives and provide orientation.
