Kruispunt is a resting point for our visitors. You can be yourself, you don’t have to do anything. Just a warm roof over your head, a safe haven. Everyone is welcome.

We have a chat and offer a place to sit for a while. If necessary, we will put you in touch with the right care provider. Together we look for possibilities and opportunities for growth, despite the difficult circumstances.

Our employees receive homeless people at the front door of Kruispunt. Sometimes you have to wait a while because the room is full of people.
There is coffee, tea and bread in the morning and a hot meal in the evening.
The hostess/host and the volunteers ensure that the atmosphere in the room remains good and that all activities run smoothly.

There are pastors where you can go for a conversation or referral to care providers. Every week these care providers have consultation hours in Kruispunt.

Usually there is a pastor present during opening hours. These are Pieter van der Toorn and Nienke van Ittersum. They offer help, information or just a conversation. A conversation about meaning can also help to provide structure and support; they do not impose a particular faith.
