The Frère Roger Children’s Center offers children and adolescents who need special care and support a protected living environment. In family-like structures you will find enough space to practice social awareness, social skills and personal skills. Most of our residential groups and day care centers as well as our school are in the immediate vicinity. This way, all employees who look after your child can always coordinate precisely. Complementary medical care is provided through the nearby clinic for child and adolescent psychiatry and psychotherapy guaranteed in the Josefinum.
The Augsburg Children’s Center offers all of the KJF children’s and youth welfare services in the Augsburg region. Here can young people have positive experiences in every respect.
Reside and live

Offers for young people and families
A good place for children, teenagers and also parents. Our children’s center also has many outpatient and open offers for everyone: from social pedagogical family help, family stations to youth centers, street work to our youfarm.
The fundamental rights of children and adolescents are firmly anchored in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. In the Frère Roger Children’s Center, we follow their principles and regulations. Since some of the formulations are not immediately understandable, we have published a “translation” with the children and young people that everyone understands. With us everyone knows his rights and can also demand them.

Brother Roger – our namesake
Our daily pedagogical work is shaped by the life goal of our namesake Frère Roger: “Love and say it with his life”. During the Second World War Brother Roger hid refugees from the Nazis, cared for war orphans, but also for German prisoners of war. In 1949 he founded the "Communauté de Taizé", an ecumenical brotherhood that solidarized with the poorest of the poor and worked towards reconciliation of the Christian denominations. We have taken his love for all people and his unconditional commitment as a role model. And pass this on to children, adolescents and families.
