The Marienfelde Refugee Center was a station on the way to the West – and not only for East German newcomers. Starting in 1964, an increasing number of ethnic German emigrants from Poland – and later the former Soviet Union – came to Marienfelde. Until Summer 2010 the Berlin Central Reception Center for Repatriates (ZAB) was located on the grounds of the former Marienfelde Refugee Center. Since December 1, 2010, the former refugee center located at Marienfelder Allee 66/80 has served as temporary housing for refugees and asylum seekers from many nations, including Serbia, the Russian Federation, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Lebanon, and others. 

The International Coalition, by order of the state of Berlin, operates the Temporary Housing Center at Marienfelde and provides advising services and other supports for the residents. The Coalition and its agency for youth services, social work, and education, headquartered in Frankfurt am Main, are a national non-profit organization with approximately 12,000 employees. In Berlin, the International Coalition (Der Internationale Bund e.V.) organizes day care facilities, and provides vocational education and stationary as well as mobile facilities for homeless individuals, refugees, asylum seekers, and ethnic German emigrants. Berlin, 2016.
