Support organisation

“Frauenhaus Rhein-Erftkreis e.V.” was founded as a charity in 1986 by women from the Rhein-Erft area, with the aim of setting up a women’s refuge.

The refuge opened on 1 March 1989. Since its founding, the refuge has operated autonomously under the umbrella of this charity.

The support organisation also employs a number of women working voluntarily to minimise administrative costs.
