Our projects

HEKS/EPER is making a difference in the «Assisted living» in the region of Basel (both sides)

The programmes offered by the HEKS/EPER Basel Regional Office make a vital contribution to social cohesion and the inclusion of disadvantaged people in society. Through its advocacy work it promotes equal opportunity for all, irrespective of culture, religion, status and gender. Another important cause is the promotion of harmonious coexistence between migrants and locals. The Regional Office works closely with cantonal churches, regional and cantonal authorities as well as with private institutions.

Head of the Regional Office:

Christine Giustizieri

Having one's own living space is a decisive prerequisite for protection and a sense of security. It is also the basis for a socially integrated life. But running one's own household is not a matter of course for everyone. Many people's existence is derailed by a severe life crisis, an addiction problem, mental illness or even a prison sentence. These people have very slim chances on the open housing market and risk isolation or even total abandonment. The "HEKS/EPER Housing" project strives to prevent homelessness and neglect in the Cantons of Aargau, Basel Stadt and Baselland. Socially disadvantaged people receive housing support as well as individual counselling.
