Herzogenaurach helps: Provision of Accommodations for Refugees

An increasing number of war refugees is arriving in Germany, looking for a safe place to stay. If there are no relatives or friends to go to, these people are literally left with nothing. We can support and help them. People in Germany are highly willing to help. There is a lot of commitment in our administrative district and people keep asking: What can we do explicitly? You would like to provide an accommodation? Please contact us!

We want to be prepared before refugees start arriving here and therefore would like to consolidate information on possible accommodations in order to be able to provide a safe and calm place and support to the often traumatized refugees.

This is how you can help: If you would like to offer rooms or apartments for refugees, please contact us by email to

What information do we need from you?

  • Who provides the apartment / room? (contact data of provider)
  • Where is the accommodation?
  • How big is it, how many rooms are there, how many persons can live there?
  • For what period of time can the accommodation be provided?
  • Are there any costs and if so, to what amount?
