It was founded as a charity in 1946/47. The expertise is in providing services for children, families and older people. Volkshilfe offers both mobile and residential health care for the elderly as well as childcare.

In addition Volkshilfe has an Institute for Research, Education and Development called “Connect” that is providing in-service-training for the staff, but is also occupied with carrying out transnational projects in the European programmes for education.
Since Volkshilfe is providing its services for the community, it keeps close contact with the local authorities and politicians. Moreover Volkshilfe has built an efficient network with organisations providing services for families.
