New e-mail-addresses for HdG:





As of 2015, a lot of people have been making a great effort to integrate our refugees, currently numbering approx. 250.

This endeavour has proved to be quite successful, which the mixed Integration Team, along with other initiatives in Everswinkel and Alverskirchen, may take the credit for.

Therefore, the members have pondered to give a new form to their work. From now on, their primary concern will be to plan and hold the Get-Together in the HdG.

Further Approach

Home page of the Refugee Initiative:




There will be no Get-Together due to the summer break. The next date will be announced in time.


# The Personal Liability Insurance (Haftpflichtversicherung) offered by the local authority (Rathaus) ends as soon as a refugee has received his/her Residence Permit (Aufenthaltsstatus), i.e. when he/she receives support by the Job Center.

Consequence: He/She must take out an insurance himself/herself!

# You should ensure that your account (e.g. at Sparkasse/Volksbank) has sufficient funds available at your direct debits, e.g. for your rent (Abbuchungsermächtigungen für z.B. Miete), since your financial institution will charge considerable fees immediately. Keep in mind that the first payments by the Job Center might take some time!
