Our mission: to reduce the risk of disadvantage
Parents balance a lot on their shoulders: They are not only responsible for their own lives, but also for those of their children. But parents are also just people with different strengths and weaknesses. It becomes particularly challenging when they are disadvantaged by their circumstances. If there is no balance, their children's chances of participation can deteriorate.
We offer compensation. In at least 14 languages we provide unhindered access to helpful information for everyday life and crisis. Together we formulate individual problem solutions. The goal is: fair opportunities for all. We support confidentially and free of charge so that all parents can overcome hurdles on their own and look into a fair future with their children.
These values guide us:
There is no reason why all people do not deserve the same opportunities in life. But there are many reasons why they don't get them. We want to reduce this disadvantage.
Every person is unique. Our range of information is correspondingly diverse, and we offer it in at least 14 languages for parents with different personal requirements.
The burden on parents is often underestimated. We understand the daily challenges of parents and take possible consequences seriously. Only in this way can beneficial solutions be found.
Sometimes it takes new ways to solve old problems. We not only point them out, but also use the latest digital possibilities to support parents and children flexibly at all times.
Parents have more important things to do than spend a long time searching the Internet for answers. We provide bundled information for parents and find simple words for difficult situations.
Our history: towards the future through the crisis
Parents are not sufficiently supported in their multiple burden, their key role is underestimated. This was made abundantly clear by the corona crisis that began in early 2020. The FiBS ElternHotline gGmbH was founded as a "Social-Edu-Tech-Start-up" in March 2020 to counteract the consequences of short and long-term disadvantages for parents and children. We regard this project as a permanent mission.
