The Center for Women in crisis needs to be overcome
1

Why women?

Research on the situation of the homeless in the city of Lviv shows that women are the most vulnerable among people who are forced to live on the street. They usually lose their homes due to domestic violence, orphanhood, human trafficking, deals with apartment/property swindlers or after failed attempts to work abroad.

What do we do?

The goal of the Center is to help women in crises, to bring them back to society, to give them hope by providing accommodation (for 14 months), and social support.

Our history

2010 September
The Women’s Centre was launched in Lviv in September, 2010. This was and is the only women’s center of its kind in Western Ukraine. Over 90 women have found shelter in the “Walnut House”, with over 80% managing to recover and make a new start in life.
2012
In 2012, to support the Center of Integral Care for Women in Crisis, we launched a social bakery. We give 40% of all income towards the social projects of the Walnut House Fund and to support the Center of Integral Care for Women in Crisis.
2016 November
In November 2016, the Center was temporarily closed because the building we rented was sold. The Lviv City Council donated the municipal property, a building on Lychakivska Str., to the Walnut House Fund. However, the building is in urgent need of repair.
