Who are we?

Founded in 1996, the Stëmm vun der Stross (which literally translates to ‘Voice of the Street’) encourages the social and professional integration of underprivileged but also discriminated individuals. Appointed and concerted by the health minister, the non-profit association collaborates with the Luxembourgish Red Cross. The headquarters are located in the capital city, Luxembourg. In 2004, the city of Esch-sur-Alzette additionally offered premises, which enabled the establishment of a second restaurant. Furthermore, the workshop for social reintegration called Schweesdreps is also located in the second-largest city of Luxembourg. During the year of 2014, the Stëmm vun der Stross was able to open new branches in Hollerich, Schoenfels, Tétange and Belvaux. The association mainly supports people who are homeless, unemployed, living on a minimum wage, ex-criminals, asylum seekers, immigrants and people who suffer from addictions such as alcoholism, drugs and medication.

We work for the social and professional integration of the disadvantaged people.

In 2016 Stemm vun der Stross enabled:

‘I had come to join the Stëmm through another friend. I had been working for a bank most of my life and told myself that I would want to do something different in my retirement, mainly as a volunteer. All my colleagues have been skeptical towards my work at the Stëmm. My loved ones, however, have been very supportive. The first time I started here, I did not know how people would react. I thought that they might be aggressive. But that was not the case at all. Nobody really knew my role. ‘Oh hey, the new guy!’’ Nobody knew that I was in fact a volunteer. Now, I have simply become one of them.’
Nico, 67
