PHONE COUNSELLING AND HOUSING
At the reception, we ensure the constant presence of a counselor for the women and children in the shelter and to provide phone assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
COUNSELING FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN
Our counselors support the sheltered woman in her journey to break the cycle of violence, while the youth counselor helps the children to express themselves about their experiences.
We offer a place for support and reflection for those who wish to explore the consequences of domestic violence in more depth.
This family intervention program helps the child overcome difficulties that may be associated with family violence and creates a safe space to rebuild the relationship with his/her parents.
We also hold various types of activities (conferences, workshops, booths, training, etc.) to raise awareness and prevent domestic violence.

Carrefour pour Elle is a living environment created by, for, and with women. We support and respect women in their choices and the steps they take. We promote egalitarian relationships as well as the resumption of power by women over their lives.
All our services are accessible according to our accommodation capacity, our ability to offer safe and confidential services, the availability of our human resources, and according to the needs of women and their children. We always carry out an individual assessment before offering services, and we keep the right to refer anyone to a more appropriate resource.

All of our services are provided based on available funding and human resources, according to the needs identified with the women and the house’s ability to respond adequately to the requests it receives.
We are not responsible for the lack of accommodation and any waiting list for our individual, group, or family follow-up services.
