Shelter for Women Victims of Violence & their children” - Directorate of Social Solidarity

See here for changes in the City of Athens service program as part of its public health protection measures against coronavirus.

The “Shelter for Women Victims of Violence & their children” was inaugurated in June 2013. It operates on 24/7 basis, 365 days a year. Specialized staff (social worker, psychologist, pedagogue) provides safe hospitality, food, socio-psychological support and care for our ladies guests and their children.

The shelter aims to support, empower and reintegrate women into community life and the labor market.

Their stay is of a temporary and transitional character. Guests are all women regardless of the age, religion or nationality, who have been victims of any form of violence: physical, psychological, sexual or economic.

Legal counseling and assistance are provided through the social services of the City of Athens, Women's Counseling Centers of the General Secretariat for Gender Equality or other public services, which facilitate access to employment, education, health and welfare services.

The Shelter is funded by the program "Operation of Local Government Structures and Services in favor of Women and for Combating Violence - Development and Operation of Shelters" NSF (2014-2020).
