Christian Bauer, co-founder and 1st chairman of the association and Monika and Lisa Winkler gladly came to Schölly on this sunny Friday afternoon to receive the check.

On behalf of the association, they thanked the entire Schölly staff and the donor Veronika Ringwald and informed the delegation of the works council about the origin of the association, the status of the project and about the future planned communal living together of the five girls and five boys between 18-21 years of age, some of whom are independent and communicative, some of whom require a high level of care and support.

The future living space for the 10 young people is currently being built in the "Quartier Dreikönig" in Emmendingen, where they will be able to "live together" in the community. Sharing fun and joy, overcoming hurdles together, organizing leisure activities and thus participation in social life is thus encouraged.

Living in the residential group relieves the parents/families in everyday life and at the same time makes it easier for them to let go of their children into adult life.

Lisa Winkler, one of the future residents of the group home, is already looking forward to moving in and can hardly wait to start a self-determined and self-responsible life in the middle of society.

The Schölly staff is happy to support this project and hopes that it will set a precedent and thus bring special people further into the center of society.

Every year, the Schölly works council thinks about who should be supported with the money traditionally collected before Christmas. The suggestions come from the workforce. The selection process considers whether the institution is located in the Denzlingen area or whether there is a personal connection.
