Women's shelter in Mödling

The women's shelter in the Mödling district offers women and their children who are in acute danger due to violence in their relationships a safe place to calm down and reorient themselves. The residents of the women's shelter receive both psychosocial and legal advice from trained social workers. In addition, an emergency number is operated around the clock.


Women who flee to the women's shelter often only have the opportunity to take the most essential items such as clothing and personal documents with them and leave everything else behind. The things necessary for a new start in a life without violence, such as bed linen and towels, cooking utensils or furniture, are not included in the basic funding of the women's shelter. In order to be able to support the women in moving out into their new life, the women's shelter depends on donations.
