House of Joy Hoofddorp

Select your language

House of Joy is growing! Instead of once per month, we are now open every week, since September 2022. Therefore, we are looking for other Christians from any culture, who want to use their talents to make something beautiful out of House of Joy. Our focus is on organizing the meals, but we hope to create a platform of all kind of different contacts between migrants and native Dutch.

Are you interested in House of Joy and do you like to help out? We are looking forward to get to know you! This is possible by contacting us through the contact form on this page.

We think it is important that everyone should be able to come to our activities. For this reason we ask no money for the meals and other services. Would you like to make this possible? If so, many thanks! Please transfer your gift to:

These people need help

Mr. Ali needs a job


Mr Ali has been living in Hoofddorp with his wife and four children for a year now and he would very much like to build a new life in the Netherlands. On Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays he goes to integration class. On the other days he would like to earn some money, because with his social benefit he can hardly make ends meet. He knows his benefits will be cut if he earns money, but still he would like to have a job or do odd jobs for people. Mr. Ali speaks excellent English and is already learning Dutch quite nicely. He has worked in his home country as a mail sorter.

Can you help him find a job or can you let him do some odd jobs for you? Then please contact us through the contact form on this page.
