Give Living Space

Rent out your flat and support women.

If the women and their children want to move out of our women’s shelter, they often cannot find a place to live and there are no urgently needed women’s shelter places available. For this reason, we are urgently looking for affordable housing.

Due to the housing shortage in the Bonn area, the women do not find a flat after their time in the women’s shelter.

Affordable housing is known to be very scarce and the challenge of finding it is becoming ever greater. The autonomous women’s shelter has been overcrowded most of the time since its foundation. The number of rejections has remained high for over 10 years and is far above the national average. Every woman who moves out of the women’s shelter also makes room for a woman and her children who urgently need a place in a women’s shelter.

Due to the frequent receipt of transfer benefits (e.g. ALG II), women are often stigmatised. Single and single-parent women, especially women with several children or those who are considered non-German read are often exposed to prejudice and also racial discrimination when looking for housing. They hardly have a chance to find suitable housing on the open housing market.

As a result, many women and their children have to stay in the women’s shelter longer than is necessary for them.

    Common Questions

    Oui : comme pour toute autre location, le/la gestionnaire immobilier/ et les locataires potentiels se rencontrent généralement avant la conclusion du contrat et décident ensuite si un contrat de location peut être conclu ou non.

    Yes: As with any other letting, property managers/landlords and potential tenants usually get to know each other before the contract is signed and then decide whether or not a tenancy will be established.

    As the women in the women’s refuge do not have to observe any notice periods, they can usually move into their new home quite quickly.

    As with any other tenancy, the duration is specified in the tenancy agreement. As a rule, the contract is open-ended, but for certain reasons, such as planned refurbishment, personal use, etc., it can also be limited in time.

    Suitable flats

    The women often have to flee from the violence of their husbands from other cities to the women’s refuge. During their stay in the women’s refuge, they have settled in Bonn, they know their way around and their children have found a place in a day-care centre or school.

    For this reason, most of the women want to stay in Bonn. Sometimes, there is a resident who would like to live outside Bonn. Because most women do not own a car, it is important to have good public transport connections.
