Theo Lens
Chairman

Initiator of the foundation is Theo Lens, musician, author, business man and documentary maker. Theo Lens knows from his own experience that a safe and warm home is essential for every person. His first confrontation with a homeless person in physical need, where he did not do anything to his own surprise, was like a wake up call for his conscience. "What kind of a human being am I, that I carelessly let a man suffer with his pain?" This moment led to the making of the documentary 'Home at Last' and the founding, named after his father, a family doctor. "Every homeless person needs a friendly word and hope to be able to find a safe moment and the road to dignity."
