A Home for a Home – SOS Children’s Villages Project Manager

«Everyone needs a home. Everyone deserves a home. And home is much more than just walls, furniture, and logistics. It is, or should be, shelter and protection, a safe haven in a world of turbulence. A place of acceptance, of belonging and with people that matter. Where memories are made. Where we are made. Without a home we are lost.»

With our strong values and customer centred mindset, we enrich and simplify life for over
200 000 people through Friendly Homes, and the positive impact in what we do shall go beyond the expected. Therefore, we are taking our societal contribution to the next level and are proud and excited to present A Home for a Home – a program that will make a huge difference for children and families all over the world.

A Home for a Home is a partnership between Heimstaden and the non-profit organization SOS Children’s Villages to fight poverty and uncertainty for children across the globe and will over the years become the largest corporate contribution in SOS Children’s Villages globally and probably the biggest partnership of any kind for SOS Children’s Villages.
