Sozialwerk St. Georg e.V. was founded in 1952 by the Catholic parish of St. Barbara in Gelsenkirchen-Buer-Erle, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, to help people with support needs. The original commitment was to enable participation in society and the achievement of equal rights for people with disabilities. Through our ongoing development, we have emerged as a social services company with differentiated services. 

Our goal is to provide person - centered services on Christian based values which enable people in need of assistance to live a self-determined life.
