Life at the women’s shelter

The women’s shelter is neither an asylum nor a hotel. The occupants together organize their daily schedules and their lives themselves. They remain responsible for themselves and their children.

There are house rules structuring living together as well as the safety of the women and children. All occupants and staff members have to abide by the house rules. To provide anonymity and for safety reasons, visitors are not permitted at the women’s shelter.

During their stay, women will meet other women with similar experiences. This often helps in dealing with their own situation. Questions and problems concerning the living together at the shelter, issues such as cultural differences, future prospects and specific women’s issues are discussed during the weekly house meetings, the mothers' meetings and issue-oriented group meetings.
