Our dream

We dream of a city in which there is a space for everyone. A city in which all people - rich and poor, socially active and isolated - live and work together to cocreate a desirable life. A city in which we are concerned with one anothers’ wellbeing and help each other grow. A city in which people who have more energy, (financial) stability or a stronger network, volunteer to help the less empowered. A city that can be a home for everyone. Where no man, woman or child needs to feel lost.

Douwe Wouters

Forty years ago, the Reverend Wouters found himself caring for young, homeless addicts in Vondel Park. Nowadays, we are a large organisation offering care to the most vulnerable people in Amsterdam.


We collaborate with other organizations in Amsterdam to make our city a better place.

What can you do?

We need your help, become a volunteer! You can help by investing your time and energy, by working with citizens of Amsterdam with unusual stories. Or become a donor! Your money will be well spent on care for homeless people, aid for (former) addicts and people living in poverty or social isolation. You are always welcome to drop by and see how your money is spent. Or why not buy one of the products from our online Gift Shop? A present for someone you know, perhaps. It's all contributing towards a better society. And that's great, isn't it?
