Life is returning to the historic Maisinger Mühle.

In a few days, the first children will move in, who will be cared for there with curative education and psychotherapy.

But this is only the beginning of the social project of the owners.

Maising – Just as a ruin can become a proud building again, an injured soul can become a happy person again.

Angela Bauer, chairwoman of the curative-psychotherapeutic child and youth welfare service (HPKJ), likes this parallel.

"That's a nice picture for our work," she said at the open day in the old Maisinger mill.

The house that until recently was a ruin.

But now the renovation is well advanced.

And at the beginning of June, life comes back to this historic place, which was first mentioned around 1182 and was considered Empress Sisi's favorite café around 1880.

The new life, in Bauer's picture these are the injured souls, the neglected and abused children who are cared for by the Munich association HPKJ with curative education and psychotherapy.

They come from the youth welfare office

that she brings from broken families.

From conditions in which everyday structures are missing, where violence, addiction problems and neglect prevail.

Insights into the first finished rooms

In the Maisinger Mühle, on about a third of the area of ​​the big house, the children and young people should find a new life and work on their old ones.

The building, in which other social projects are planned, is still a construction site.

But the HPKJ has already set itself up on two floors.

In addition to six children's rooms, there is a kitchen, offices, a learning support room, a bedroom for night shifts - and a large living room with a sofa and table football.

There on the wall there is a plastic board waiting to be written on.

A weekly plan entitled "family.maising", the name of the project.

The plan stands for one of the main tasks of the HPKJ: to give children, who are often unfamiliar with a regular daily routine, family-like structures.

Which is ideal for the operator of the new stationary facility: the manager is from Maisinger and actually lives just one house away.

Julia Schaumberg, 45 years old, has experience in social work and as a coach.

At the open day, she described a very personal experience.

Her mother recently came to a hospice, and Schaumberg entered the facility with fear and uncertainty.

"But the nurses talked to me for three hours at my mom's bedside, did other things and made us the center of attention.

If we show just as much affection and compassion here, we'll do everything right," she said, adding: "With all the regulations and documentary obligations, it must always be about the needs of the children."

The HPKJ has existed since 1988, has around 20 social offers in its portfolio and clear guidelines.

Chairwoman Angela Bauer explained it this way: “The first goal is for families to come together again, not separation.

We don't want to promote home careers.” The pedagogues and psychologists in the mill are supposed to ensure a slow mutual rapprochement.

Also in terms of space: there is an apartment for parents on the upper floor, so they can move in themselves and be cared for and treated as a family.

Next door is probably the loveliest room: a large bed under the sloping roof, a white stool, an Ikea shelf, light-colored wood, large skylights.

The bedroom for the night shift.

A specialist must always be there, there are a total of 9.2 positions.

A good care key for six children,

Lots of light under the roof: the night shift bedroom.

Many ideas for the future of the mill

The owner couple Dr.

Klaus Faust and Sabine Frey from the Lodenfrey fashion company based in Garching want to make the mill a place worth living in for several generations - for disadvantaged children, but also for seniors who are looking for affordable housing and company.

In addition, many projects are conceivable, and there are also inquiries from other clubs "who want to do something here," said Faust.

There are many ideas, but little that is ready to be pronounced.

The house offers eight apartments in total.

It will take some time before everyone is ready to move into.

"That can drag on until the end of the year."

Building authority burdened even more than expected

A lot of concrete can still be seen, also inside.

The horticulturist will soon tackle the outdoor facilities.

In mid-February, the social future of the mill was hanging in the balance for a moment.

There was a fire, the roof caught fire during craftsmen's work.

Fortunately, the destruction was limited (we reported).

The affected roof structure has been repaired and the consequences of the fire in the stairwell have been eradicated.

With the revival of the mill where Klaus Faust's grandparents once lived, the owners founded the Maiki association - the abbreviation stands for "Maisinger Kinder".

The association should generate donations and support social projects (not only in the mill).

Christian Sautier is planning one that is specially designed for children in the region.

With his mobile Ape-Cafébar he catered for the visitors at the open day.

As a social worker and ceramist, he sees creative potential in the empty chicken coop next to the mill.

"I could imagine an open art workshop there, where children can make pottery, for example," he said in passing.

A social worker who is also a ceramist works for the HPKJ.

A win-win situation.

The operators of the residential group would also like one for the children and their parents.

HPKJ is asking for donations

In order to be able to care for the children even better, the HPKJ asks for donations.

The account: GLS community bank, IBAN: DE19 4306 0967 1041 6827 00, BIC GENODEM1GLS, reference: family.maising.

By the way: Everything from the region is now also available in our regular Starnberg newsletter.
