Constellations is a Belgium nonprofit which develops housing solutions for people with mental disability in the Brussels region.


Since its start in 2001, Constellations has worked in the Brussels region to support adults with mental disabilities, with its mission to develop suitable housing for disabled adults. Constellations has already built accommodation for 10 places in Boitsfort and 40 in Etterbeek.

Constellations has decided to bring its know-how and financial support to other projects, thereby accelerating their completion. 

We have chosen two projects, those of the Asbl le Potelier and Timber.

Le Potelier’s project is completed as building started in May 2013. The Potelier’s new centre named “Villa Pilifs”  opens in January 2015. This will allow the opening of 30 new places in Brussels.

Constellations aims to raise €250,000 for Le Potelier. Our 2013 fundraising started in August and has yielded €255,000.Thus we will have made possible a most positive outcome for this great project.

In the meantime our fundraising activity continues with Timber’s project.

Timber currently welcomes 22 people with a mental disability. Their work - providing wood logs for heating, from cutting the trees to delivering the logs to the homes - takes place in the forests around Brussels. Timber has just announced the creation of a new entity. The Asbl Timber project for the creation of bakery and fruit pressing workshops - for 25 persons with a mental disability. This project has been approved by the Brussels Region for an amount of €1,000,000, the total cost being €1,700,000. We plan to help this project with a significant amount in 2014/15 and have already raised more €150,000.

Social Impact

Since its start in 2001 by a group of parents, Constellations has worked in the Brussels region to support young adults with mental disabilities. There is indeed a severe shortage of places (day and residence centres) in the Brussels region.

The Constellations team is composed of parents and scientific authorities coming from the two largest communities of Belgium.
