ABeSa ambulante Hilfen GmbH is a service provider for Social Integration
Assistance as well as for Youth & and Family Support
ABeSa is derived from „ambulante Betreuung (community based
support), Beratung (advice) and Assistenz (assistance) in der Sozialarbeit“
(in social work).
The organization was established in 2005 after signing a service
agreement with the Hamburg Government. The first office opened in
Wilhelmsburg and has now grown to ABeSa providing community based
support work to clients in the Hamburg areas of Harburg, Mitte, Wandsbek,
North and Altona whilst also having points of contact in the Greater Hamburg
Within Social Integration Support (SGB VIII) we have service agreements for ASP, PBW, Wohnassistenz and HFbK and within Youth & Family Support (SGB
VIII) we have service agreements for Erziehungsbeistand (Educational Guardianship) and Sozialpädogische Familienhilfe (Social-Educational Family Support).
The goal of our work is to support clients to develop an independent and self
-defined life; clients to have an improved quality of life using a resource
orientated approach. This is a fundamental aspect of our work in supporting
people with a mental illness aged 14 years and older.
ABeSa teams are multidisciplinary and we support clients from culturally and
linguistically diverse backgrounds, in particular from Afghan, German, and
Persian, Turkish and Arabic cultures but also more than these! We also offer when required culturally sensitive support in the client's first language.
ABeSa is a member of the “Federal Association of Private Service Providers in
Social Services (Bundesverband der privaten Anbieter sozialer Dienste).
