Basic principles


At the Pinzgau Women’s Shelter, the principle of “
Help for self-help
” in the first place. The goal is to strengthen the women and children in their internal security. External protection and security are basic requirements for the beginning of a new path. When women organize their new lives themselves (with support) and notice that they can make decisions and take steps on their own, this strengthens their self-confidence and gradually leads to the necessary inner security.

Both the women and the children have individual strengths, resources and potentials and these are to be specifically worked out and promoted. On this basis, the personality is strengthened and consolidated in the sense of self-empowerment and possibilities for action are expanded. Keeping the children equally in mind is another prerequisite for the sustainability of personal development.

Women and children are also supported in the exercise of their right to physical and psychological integrity by a
partisan attitude
supported. The experiences of violence are taken seriously and a stand is taken against violence, dominance and coercive relationships.

In the everyday life of the women’s shelter
solidarity among the residents
be stimulated. While respecting privacy, the aim is to promote an exchange of experiences with other affected women and children and mutual assistance. Women affected by violence are often socially isolated and have lost confidence in the viability of relationships. The Pinzgau Women’s Shelter offers the chance to develop new trusting relationships while maintaining autonomy through personal and open interaction.

Women live and experience diversity and interculturality at the Pinzgau Women’s Shelter. Diversity is a value that is lived, passed on and reflected in the house. The Pinzgau Women’s Shelter stands for an
inclusive, anti-discriminatory attitude towards women.
towards women. It is open to all women and children, regardless of denomination, nationality, sexual orientation, gender identity, residency status, age or impairment.

Highlighting power inequalities in society that discriminate against women and children and prevent them from accessing rights and resources is fundamental to countering domestic violence against women and children. Raising society’s awareness about these connections is an important core activity.

The counseling process at the Pinzgau Women’s Shelter remains
transparent, comprehensible and self-responsible by the woman
. We support the women and children through an appreciative attitude, reliability, empowerment and qualified expertise.

voluntariness and confidentiality
are basic principles that are lived in the Pinzgau Women’s Shelter.
