description of organisation

The Lebenshilfe Vorarlberg is an organization founded in 1967.

Loackerhuus is a subsidiary institution which was opened in March 2011 in Götzis, near Dornbirn. Our general principle is "people need people" no matter whether you have a disability or not. Our work focuses on the uniqueness of every human being and in the belief that society depends on every individual person and every individual person depends on the society.

Loakerhuus is an institution for people with intellectual disabilities and behavior problems starting at the age of 16 and going on to retirement.

Loackerhuus is intended as an open meeting place with the object of offering individuals in the town and nearby region an opportunity to take part in public life. The Loackerhuus-Café offers the possibility for people with and without disabilities to meet socially. We employ 21 people with intellectual disabilities and behavioral problems.

Furthermore Loackerhuus offers:


The Café in Loackerhuus is designed to meet the needs of families and children.

With this in mind, food and drink is served in flavour and size to match children’s tastes.

Everything offered on the menu in Loackerhuus-Café is prepared exclusively with local ingredients. The cakes and biscuits offered are homemade in the kitchen on site. The ingredients vary according to season. In a corner of the Café there is a play area with child-sized furniture, books and games.


The kitchen is organized by a pastry cook and confectioner, whose job is to teach the handicapped how to cook and bake with the given ingredients. Additionally snacks and light meals are made for external sale.

Creative group:

The creative workshop is to be found in the top floor. This area is a combined place for work, therapy and training. Decorative objects are produced.

ARTelier workshop:

The handicapped employees, their families, friends and visitors can take part in a multitude of creative activities, they can paint and create works of art. The staff at the ARTelier can offer their expertise and supply a range of artistic materials. The importance of the individual needs of each person is recognized and taken into account, which in turn enhances the inspiring surroundings.

Our staff has a pedagogic and a subject-specific training, which is a basic requirement for our concept.

It also qualifies us to accompany people with disabilities on their way to the regular employment market.

This organisation is accredited to run projects under Erasmus+ Volunteering and the European Solidarity Corps.
