Caritas Jeunes et Familles is a Luxembourg association celebrating 35 years of activity. CJF's mission is "Together, let's build the future of your children and young people". Our staff work on a daily basis in the children, youth and family sectors to support beneficiaries throughout their lives, whatever their needs or the path they take. Our responsibility is to ensure that our mission is carried out in a caring, stimulating and inclusive environment.
CJF runs 4 Foyers de Jour, 10 Crèches and 11 Maisons Relais, catering for children not attending school and those attending school, during the day. Our mobile Bookmobile service travels around our crèches to promote languages and reading, and to provide stimulating and varied educational tools.
We also have 6 day and night care homes, where our professionals ensure that children and young people can flourish in a stimulating and reassuring environment.
This mission continues with the SLEMO, a supported housing service, which helps young adults on their way to independent living.
On the ground, the Streetwork service, the Neighbourhood service, and the Youth Centres aim to follow young people or residents in their living environment.
CJF offers more specific family-related services :
- Our Dys-positiv service supports children with learning disabilities and their families.
- The FARE service works with families to help them if they are experiencing difficulties.
- Isypsy and the Kannerjugendtelefon offer support, listening and psychological assistance to children, young people and adults who request it.
- youngcaritas is a multi-disciplinary service offering holiday camps for children, training and solidarity projects for young people.
Our International Protection Applicants Service and Accompaniment and Transition Service teams also focus on the inclusion and integration of refugee families in our country. More specifically, they offer activities, homework support, etc.
It's a vast and ambitious mission, and it's thanks to the professionalism and caring of our staff that we're able to achieve it.
