In 1994, members of the city council established the institute of the Young Family’s Home. The Young Family’s Home is a project to help young families and single parents with minor children as well as young married couples who want to start a family but are struggling to find housing.

Assistance to young families is provided by renting out flats under the conditions laid down in the statute of the Young Family’s Home. Housing in this institute's flats is provided in the form of a tenancy for a fixed period of time. Contracts are normally concluded for two years, with the possibility of renewal for a further two years subject to the conditions set out in Article 4 of the Statutes of the Young Family’s Home – but for no more than ten years in total.

Accommodation is provided for:

  • families and single parents with minor children
  • married couples
