Reconnection and support project for homeless Middle and Eastern European migrants – Team Alphen aan den Rijn

Stichting Barka’s support & reconnection programme for the homeless Middle and Eastern European migrants in Alphen aan den Rijn started in February 2020 following an invitation from the municipality of Alphen aan den Rijn. Stichting Barka now assists homeless Polish and other Central and Eastern European people, who are not able to cope with life in Alphen aan den Rijn. In some cases, support in Alphen aan den Rijn might be provided to specific individuals who’s nature of homelessness stems from social issues. For others who struggle with addiction problems, our reconnection programme is in place to help these individuals return to their home countries, either to enter rehab treatment facilities, mental help clinics, return directly to families, or to Barka Network programmes (educational, skill building and/or community based programmes) in Poland. Through this programme, individuals are being given the tools to rebuild their lives even coming from the worst circumstances.

Our team in Alphen aan den Rijn consists Ewa Sykula who is a social worker.
