A few words about the new Shelter

Our Association is in the process of building our own Shelter for domestic violence victims. The Shelter will be equipped to face to a greater extent the current needs as we will be able to accommodate more people and offer upgraded and better quality services.

Our Shelter has been designed according to the European standards for shelters and will be able to accommodate up to 24 people. There will be separate areas for treatment, education and entertainment of the guests. The building will also house the rest of the Association''s programmes which are, the helpline 1440, personal appointments, the psychoeducational programme "Love Without Hurt",  the European Help Lines for children''s and teenager''s support 116 111, and  for Missing children 116 000. The Shelter will be separated from the Crisis Centre.  

The cost of the construction is expected to amount to €1,035,122.00. Norway will cover the amount of €742,198.00 through the financial program Norway Grants. The remaining amount will be contributed by the Republic of Cyprus, OPAP and money the Association has gradually put aside the past decade.

The project began on September 1, 2014 and will be completed in May 2016.
