Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, personal contact with others must be avoided where possible. To minimize the health risk to families, volunteers, and vulnerable people, we are not currently running our welcome visit “We’re glad you’re here”, for families with a 6-8-week-old new-born. However, supporting young families with a family sponsor is still possible to a limited extent.

We have compiled some current information for you in the following:

 

  • Families need support in these times as well! The education coordination specialist, Verena Winterle, is more than happy to help you look for ways of getting relief in your current situation.

    You can make an appointment for a personal consultation at the municipal library Mondays for 10 am– 3pm by phoning 06171 502 235 or sending an email to verena.winterle@oberursel.de.

    We consult over the phone or by email from Tuesday to Friday between 8 am and 2 pm.

  • “We’re glad you’re here”: You will receive our congratulations, your gift and helpful information on the birth of your child by post. If you have questions, or need advice or support, then don’t hesitate to phone or write to us!
