The main goal of the project is to contribute to a complex solution of long-term problems of crisis centres for women in need by establishing specialized safe homes which will provide comprehensive services for this target group. The problems of existing crisis centres (KS DOMOV DÚHA a Brána do života) are mainly those of capacity and economic nature. However, they are left unsolved due to frequently changing legislation followed by the respective organizational and/or financing changes.

The secondary project objective is a provision of professional and material aid necessary for the establishment of specialized safe homes for women. The Bratislava Self-Governing Region, as the project partner, provides a building, in addition to its expert skills and experience with designing concepts in social area and networking of similar centres. After renovation, the building serves as a safe home for women.
Thanks to the project, a new facility has been created, and in already existing another one, new services have been made available. Both centres are thus ready to provide assistance, support and services to women (and their children) suffering from or at risk of violence. The two facilities are also accessible for persons with impaired mobility: one with the capacity of 6 family places/10 women and the second one offering 12 family places/30 women.
