HVO-Querido is a care organization in Amsterdam, Diemen, Amstelveen and Haarlem that has been around since 1904. They support vulnerable citizens so that they can participate in society again. They thereby assume what someone can do, rather than not.
HVO-Querido is an organization for the homeless. Just like the people of Stonewall in, their residents fight for their existence. Just like the people at Stonewall, they fight for acceptance. And to leave their existence as a homeless person behind. The text of our boat ‘Everyone needs a Stone Wall’ refers to the Stonewall riots, but also to the purpose of our organization: housing for vulnerable people.
