Since september 2015 I am desperately looking for a apartment of my own. I am from the Congo. I am 18 years old and am living in a Asylantenheim at this moment. The circumstances there aren't very flattering. I already have been at Haus K where they advised me, i have put up a lot of ''Anzeigen'' in the internet and sent a lot of e-mails. Till today I didn't find a place. Is there anyone who has an idea for me ? who knows organisations ? I know it is also already critical for german people to find a flat.
I hope someone can help me .
It is indeed difficult finding a place to stay, especially in Berlin. But there are institutions that can help you find a room. Since you told me, that you are already having the Schein from Lageso that certifies that your room will be payed by the LeGeSo, you can contact the "Wohnungen für Flüchtlinge"
They are placed in Turmstr. 21, Haus K 10559 Berlin Moabit
They will help you personally to find a room and they even have a certain amount of apartments that they can give away directly to refugees.
In case you are looking for a shared flat. You can aswell contact "Flüchtlinge Willkommen" who can help you find a room, too.
Hi Arnold, I´m sorry for that too. Have you been back to Haus K since September? Thanks Henrietta for the alternatives :)
On fluechtlinge-willkommen.de/ just click "You are a Refugee?" and you can register and start to look for apartments. Flüchtlinge Willkommen ("Refugees Welcome") connects refugees with apartment-sharing communities.
I also found home4refugees.org which is still under construction but you can sign up for a newsletter to find out when the app is ready for use.
And one last facebook group where you may be able to get advice as well as search for apartments:
Keep us posted with how the search is going!
