The promotion and support of social projects is one of the important statutory objectives of the USB Foundation. Only larger, long-term projects are supported in order to reach a wider group of people over a longer period of time.
The primary aim is to support people with handicaps or people whose lives have become unbalanced, for example by helping them to (re)integrate into the society and/or a back into a regular working life, with training, finding a place to live etc. Projects handled so far include:
Funding of a qualified social education worker for young women without a fixed abode
Integration of refugees, long-term unemployed and physically or mentally handicapped people into a regular working life
Purchase of apartments for homeless people with subsequent socio-pedagogical support
All projects were carried out in cooperation with experienced partner organizations, through which qualified personnel were also brought in.
