Giorgos Moutafis for SolidarityNow

The Thessaloniki Solidarity Center (TSC) has been operating since 2013. Our goal is to provide integrated support through a series of services to people who need it. The services provided are offered free of charge to all, indiscriminately, and can be equally accessed by all in need.

People who visit the TSC seek support for issues that they are called upon to address in their daily lives but are unable to deal with. Both the inability to access services and the need for individualized and holistic support bring them in contact with professionals who provide these services at the TSC.

On a weekly basis, more than 250 people visit the TSC to receive support, with various requests and needs.

The services provided for free to anyone in need, are:

  • psychosocial support
  • legal counseling or representation
  • accounting services
  • administrative support
  • employment counseling.

Our goal is to effectively assist our beneficiaries, using an individual/personal approach, while always preserving the values of solidarity, respect, diversity, and the defense of human rights.

Thessaloniki Solidarity Center was established and is financed by Open Society Foundations. The Center in also supported by the Shapiro Foundation.
