Anonymous protected apartments

The FemJa protected apartments are a newly founded anonymous transition facility with six places for young women between the ages of 18 and 21 who have been victims of violence in their families.

Many girls have been exposed to violence in their families for years, and some also suffer from the threat of forced marriage. They often endure this situation until they are adults and can then make their own choices. They can find refuge at Fem Mädchenhaus e.VThey should find refuge from their risks in the newly established, anonymous FemJa protected apartments, where they can take stock of their situation and develop a future for themselves.  The common development of future prospects and the promotion of personal responsibility is the focus of this project. The young women should be able to cope with their everyday lives, their living space and their households themselves, and be responsible for living together with the other residents. Three social workers care for and support them six days a week.
