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.
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.
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.
