querbeet Familienzentrum Herxheim e.V. was founded in July 2008 by committed mothers, fathers and grandparents. Our hearts, the family café and the monthly parents' breakfast, the open meetings and our diverse offers in the areas of education, information and counselling are open to families, rainbow families, single parents, children, young people and grandparents.
We see ourselves as an independent and denominationally, ethnically and politically neutral meeting place and as a point of contact that wants to offer help, convey ideas, provide support and offer relief in all facets of everyday family life. "Families are our affair of the heart"
The querbeet family centre offers a colourful range of courses all year round, organises children's holiday programmes and organises the babysitting centre of Herxheim. In our toddlers' groups and our open family café, families have the opportunity to get to know each other and exchange ideas in an informal atmosphere.
The querbeet family centre is a member of the Rhineland-Palatinate family centres and is closely networked with them. Family centres are voluntary initiatives by families for families, which are supported by the Rhineland-Palatinate Ministry for Integration, Women, Children, Young People and Families with expert advice and subsidies. The querbeet Family Centre is additionally supported by the Herxheim community. In addition, as a member of the Mütterzentren Bundesverband e.V. (Federal Association of Mothers' Centres), we are networked nationwide at the level of the Mütter- und Famiienzentren. We are a partner in the "Network Family Education Landau, SÜW District and GER District" and as such are networked, for example, with the Child Protection Association, Caritas facilities, the House of the Family in Landau and the District Youth Welfare Office SÜW.
The Family Centre is recognised as a non-profit organisation in accordance with §51ff. of the tax code and is publicly recognised by the Youth Welfare Office Südliche Weinstraße in accordance with §75 Para. 3 SGB VIII as a provider of free youth welfare services for the district Südliche Weinstraße. The querbeet is supported by other voluntary helpers, who work in the family café or in other offers and activities. We are always grateful for support and ideas. The family centre can only exist through people and families who contribute with energy and joy.
