Boldly working for human dignity.
A good everyday life – together
The Helsinki Deaconess Institute is a charitable foundation boldly working for human dignity. We help people at risk of social exclusion.
Together with our sister organisation Diakonissalaitoksen Hoiva Ltd, we produce effective social welfare and health services that help improve the day-to-day lives of our clients. The aim of our work is to ensure that everyone has the chance of a dignified life.
There are nearly a thousand people working in our social enterprise group, as well as hundreds of volunteers. The proceeds of our work and assets enable us to carry out our key mission – to work for a human dignity.
We are specialised in services for special groups with demanding needs, which we develop along with our clients and partners. We operate in several localities. Civic activities occupy a crucial place in our work. Services alone are not sufficient. A person needs other people.
