The Women's Shelters Hesse - about us

The Women's Shelters Hesse offers help

The Women's Shelters Hesse offers the possibility to get comprehensive and up to date information about women shelters and women's advice centres to women seeking help, to professionals and other supporting persons.

This website is a common project of the women's shelters of Hesse. 

Women's shelters offer housing, protection and assistance in all necessary procedures in order to help women who are victim of violence and their children to achieve a self-determined life free from violence.

The women's shelters of Hesse are organised under the umbrella of the AGFH (Working Group responsible for the women's shelters of Hesse) and of LAG (State Working Group of the autonomous Women's Shelters Hesse).

Both workgroups make it possible to exchange professional information and to work together for the representation of common interests. Furthermore, concepts about women's shelters' work are here discussed and developed.

Occasional cooperations do also regularly take place in the context of public relations.

The Women's Shelters in Hesse is part of the worldwide campaign for violence prevention conducted by Violence Prevention Alliance, an initiative of the World Health Organisation to which it belongs since 2004 as founding members.
