Our Work in Germany

JRS Germany began in 1996. JRS Germany offers a variety of services to migrants and refugees in Bradenburg, Bavaria, Berlin, Essen, and  Munich. Services include pastoral care for detained migrants, psychosocial support, legal assistance, temporary housing, supplemental education, and scholarships.

JRS Germany also participates in Advocacy – giving a voice to refugees and migrants in the German public, taking a stand on developments in refugee and asylum law, and advising communities that grant sanctuary to refugees.
