The “Integrationshaus” association provides orientation and encourages the eradication of discrimination and racism.The protection of refugees, respect for human rights, and social/residential security are central concerns. It aims to raise awareness amongst relevant stakeholders from the public sector on the key concerns facing migrants.
The services offered include help with psycho-social and legal matters, as well as language learning and childcare. Multilingual and intercultural ways of working are supported, and assistance is offered for the self-employed. For counselling, health and clinical psychological approaches are used. When working with women, the counselling service especially focuses on their empowerment and needs.

The association also organises campaigns/conferences to raise awareness of the target groups’ situation and looks to engage in wider discussions related to migrants.
The Prometheus project addresses the need for career counsellors and guidance practitioners to also consider these challenges and looks to aid in making the counselling process more relevant to the needs and attitudes of a new generation of digital natives by providing an online platform with peer networking opportunities and offering a repository of best practices and online guides and toolkits for counsellors.
