Late last year, the building housing the Frauen helfen Frauen’s women’s shelter changed ownership and the new owner decided to terminate the lease the city holds for FHF. This means that on 30 June 2012, FHF with all their women and children must vacate their house.
Both the city council and FHF are currently searching for a new location, but it’s a difficult endeavour. Low budget living accommodation is already scarce in Stuttgart and the new house must tick quite a few boxes: 1500 – 1800 m², proximity to primary schools, transport links as well as an enclosed outside space for the children to play safely (post updated to include this link with detailed information about what they are searching for).
Of course, this move also puts their organization under tremendous financial strain. This is where we can lend our support! FHF has dedicated two team members to their relationship with us and we are looking forward to intensifying our relationship with them.
