Our city is home to many residents, volunteers, and professionals that support vulnerable people. One of the challenges is to reach people that live their life in relative isolation.
The Schilderswijk Mothers is one of our city’s initiatives aimed specifically at women with little or no social network. About twenty professionally trained and coached volunteers support and activate women in the various communities of the Schilderswijk. They provide a listening ear, give practical support to participate in society, and if needed refer people to the organisations that provide further assistance. The Schilderswijk Mothers can be the bridge between government, social services and these women.
