description of organisation

Sunnahof ( is a limited liability company and an affiliated company from an association founded 1967, called “Lebenshilfe Vorarlberg”. Sunnahof is situated in Göfis, near Feldkirch.

Our general principle is “people need people” no matter if you have any disabilities or not. Our work focuses on the uniqueness of each human being and the belief that the society depends on each individual person and each individual person depends on the society.

Sunnahof is an institution for people with light intellectual disabilities and behaviour problems from the age of 16 until retirement. Our core objective is to prepare this target group for the regular employment market. Therefore Sunnahof provides four biodynamic working areas with naturalistic working conditions.

Those working areas are:
- agriculture
- plant nursery
- carpentry
- gastronomy with a farm shop

All together we engage over 60 people with light intellectual disabilities and behaviour problems. Furthermore Sunnahof offers a housing service for 20 people with disabilities which include different possibilities of assistance.

Our staff is educational and subject-specific trained a basic requirement for our concept. It enables us on the one hand to handle an agriculture with 60 hectare arable land and a lot of animals, to produce a variety of wooden products only per order, to receive about 5000 visitors per year in our gastronomy and to grow and sell 500 different species of plants. And on the other hand it qualifies us to accompany people with disabilities on their way to the regular employment market.
