Leben mit Behinderung – The Organisation

Leben mit Behinderung Hamburg (LmBH) was founded by Mr. Kurt Juster in 1956. Since then the organisation has been developed to a large service provider to assist and support people with disabilities and their families in the Hamburg region. LmBH amongst other supports about 900 adults in their living accommodation and their daily life. About 300 people go to 8 sheltered workshops and 500 families having children with disabilities are supported by various family assistance programs. The Parents’ Association (Elternverein) with its 1550 members is an important partner in Hamburg’s social politics. Leben mit Behinderung Hamburg is capable to develop forward-looking projects and offers in various areas.
