for Families

Is everyday family life feeling tough? Are you in need of speaking to other families at a similar stage in life? Would you like to drop in to a place where other families come to spend time with our volunteers?

At its best, family life is wonderful, but many people have feelings of inadequacy or perhaps just need an extra pair of hands. You don’t have to be alone with your feelings. We offer you multiple services to ease your family life – an open living room, support from our Family Friends, and counselling.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch!


Isä ulkona kahden lapsen kanssa, toinen lapsista on isän reppuselässä.

A friend talked me into coming to Albert’s Living Room. For once, I could drink a cup of coffee in peace while a volunteer spent time with my children.

I heard about the mentoring and now I have my own mentor. When we meet, we talk about everyday living with a family and what is going on in our lives. Getting about in town with the kids is also easier with an extra pair of hands.

When my kids are grown, I want to become a volunteer too and help others!”
