What is Outlaw gGmbH?

OUTLAW – that was the name of the two-mast ship that started it all and gave the name for our company which was incorporated in 1987. In those days, several living groups for especially difficult teens were established on the ship near the German city of Greven. Right from the start, the name Outlaw has stood for our efforts to help children, adolescents and their families into their own right – especially in difficult life situations. Over the years, we have developed a broad range of services arising from the field of parenting support.

In addition to our various services in the field of parenting support, child daycare is another of our central areas of activity. Driven by the conviction that child and youth services can only take full effect as a whole, our concept of early-childhood learning and care has taken root in our many locations. One look at its various programs offered today demonstrates how Outlaw gGmbH lives with dynamic processes of growth and change since its founding. These processes are bolstered by the experiences of staff in their work with children, adolescents and their families as well as the new challenges that child and youth welfare service providers face due to changing social conditions. We have remained true to our core ideas: We stand up for children and adolescents, for boys and girls and their families; and especially for anyone who – depending on your point of view – has or causes problems. All Outlaw programs work closely with the living environment of clients to improve the quality of life at home.

Outlaw supports:

• Families
• District development
• Leisure culture for children, adolescents and families
• Solidarity between generations 


At our various locations, we offer flexible programs organized according to the needs of the individual social environment. Whether the offer is a family-like living group, socio-educational and supervised accommodation, traditional child and youth care in living groups or home-visiting aid programs, whether daycare facilities for children, youth centers, truancy projects, after-school programs or multi-generational living – it is our commitment to always open up as many chances as possible for people, where they live.

Outlaw is organized decentrally with operational regions in NRW, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Brandenburg, Berlin, Lower Saxony, Bremen, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Thuringia, and Hessen. Outlaw is a member of the German association “Paritätischer Wohlfahrtsverband”.
