At a central location in the city, the World House currently has place for 9 residents. This means that you and others live together in one house. You all have a fully equipped room. The bathroom and toilet are shared with each other. The shared kitchen and lounge invites you for socializing and joined meals. In the courtyard it is nice to stay in the summer to enjoy the sun and socialize with the team and your group mates.
The office of the World House is also inside the same building. If you have any questions you can then quickly go to one of the social workers.
Who lives with us?
Our residents belong to a specific audience, people who are victims of trafficking, refugees, asylum seeker or alien who came to the Netherlands. Our residents mostly suffer from a psychiatric disorder or an intellectual disability.
All residents stay completely legal in the Netherlands and are in possession of a (temporary) residence permit.
Moreover, people from all over the world welcome in the Worldhouse!

Details like structure in your daily routine and build a social network are therefore important. But also we can teach you to cook or manage your finances and help you with integration, work or daily activities.

the correct places to handle your problems and make you feel at home in Dutch
society. We make a plan for the future with you. We are there for you when
