What is it about?

Voluntary engagement of people cared for by the Viennese homeless asistance (WWH) is seen as a process of self-appropriation. The project "animal-assisted activity" links the objectives of three groups of people: people who are in the care of WWH and have no pet, those who own one and volunteers outside the WWH.
