THE CONSULTATION IS FREE OF CHARGE AND CONFIDENTIAL

In our home for battered women we provide protection and shelter for physically and mentally abused women and their children. The address of the home is kept secret.

In an atmosphere free of fear and violence they experience peace, security receive assistance and are able to distance themselves from their traumatic experiences of the past.

Each woman independently organises her every day life. She lives alone or shares a room with her children. The kitchen and bathroom are shared with two other residents.

All-in-all, the house has two 3-room apartments and provides room for 6 women and up to 14 children.

On their way to an independent and self-determined life the women are accompanied and supported by our full-time staff members.
