Frauenhaus Amstetten offers refuge and shelter to women and their children who are threatened with, or suffer from, violence or abuse of all types - be it psychological or physical.
We offer admittance around the clock, a place to live for up to a year in an atmosphere free from fear, playing facilities and pedagogical counseling for kids, and consultation on site or by telephone for women who need support with coming to terms with experiences of violence and abuse.
Each women is assigned her own room together with her children; kitchens, bathrooms, and other facilities are communally shared.
Professional, educated staff provide counsel in legal, financial, social and pedagogical matters, as well as assisting with job searches and housing. If requested, they accompany women to public authorities and courts.
Any type of humiliation, insult, threats, emotional blackmail, financial abuse, psychological abuse, battering, forced sexual contact, child abuse, forced marriage, and deprivation of freedom of movement or free association with friends or family - and the list doesn't stop there.
All conversations are kept confidential under Austrian law, and consultation is available with a translator when necessary.
