Welcome to the Constellations website


Supporting Constellations means contributing to the creation of new, inclusive residential centres. This means your help  increases  opportunities for people with mental disabilities. This  will enable them to lead rich and fulfilling lives.



Between 2008 and 2027, Constellations will have opened 13 houses with around 385 places. (197 places have  opened ,40 are in construction and 146 are being created.) These new places are either opened by Constellations itself or by Constellations, through a partnership with another association. All these places  provide more than  15% of the existing places in the Brussels region.


Some details :

  • Between 2006 and 2013: opening of the first three houses, Les Bolets, Artemia, Orfea.
  • Between 2014 and January 2023: opening of six residential centres in partnership with other associations. These are Villa Pilifs, Farra Stratégie, Artos, Le CREB Anderlecht, Le CREB Anderlecht, Les Piloux and La Toûne(la Maisonnée).
  • Today, 4 other centres are in  a phase of “active project”: Le CREB Woluwe (daycare), Le CREB Woluwe (accommodation) , La Forestière and les Anémones in construction

The running  of the centres requires professional support, offering new job opportunities to a large number of people,  for example young graduates.


All our centres offer a wide diversity of accommodation. Constellations' first concern has been to offer solutions to the most urgent problems we were confronted with, particularly the lack of places for young adults . We have also developed places for people with specific requests:

  • people  with a double diagnosis (mental and physical disability),
  • early childhood care (including a nursery)
  • children with multiple disabilities (mental and physical disabilities) elderly people.
  • autistic children with a double  diagnosis

The seven  centres that are already operational work perfectly, are autonomous and running costs are provided funded through the regional authorities.


Il Today, we find ourselves in an unprecedented situation. This is the first time that we are  undertaking so many projects. The international situation and the resulting inflation have made the challenge even more difficult. We need your support more than ever!
