with their heart in the right place

Respitehouse HouseMartin is located on the edge of the Schilderswijk. It is a guesthouse for the sick who have no roof over their heads. Based on referral from the street nurse team, 5 guests can stay in our house for a short time to recover from illness or to recuperate after hospitalization.

We are looking for caring volunteers.

Your most important task is:

  • to be there for the other person;
  • The care you provide is aimed at recovery after illness or hospitalization;
  • You thereby support the guest’s return to her/his own independent life;
  • You do not perform any nursing actions.
  • You are available for at least 1 part of the day (4 hours) per week/per two weeks.

For this task you are:

  • balanced in life;
  • able to listen well; empathetic to people who live without a roof over their heads;
  • respectful of the habits of guests in addition to your own norms and values; experienced with the tasks for which you want to commit yourself;
  • preferably familiar with a non-Western language.

We offer:

  • a pioneer, evolving organization on the move with many social challenges;
  • good guidance and training¬†
