Within the Clinic we also opened Safe houses where women and children, victims of domestic violence, can receive psychosocial help, counsel from professionals, help from a lawyer, safe stay, food, personal hygiene items and various educational programs.
During their stay in the Safe house the women are encouraged to become independent, acquire self-esteem and respect of others. During that time they start believing in themselves and realizing their value.
The stay in safe houses is limited to 3 months, but women stay from 5 to 6 months on average, because the length of their stay depends on the level of their endangerment. If a woman is in greater danger in regard to the abuser, her stay is prolonged and lasts until the moment of the problem’s solution.
