The goal of this project is to start legwork and mobile advisory centers in the cities of Prague and Ostrava for women without homes or women in an oppressive social situation who encountered violence in their lives. These centers will provide legal and social consulting in the streets and at places where these women are. The project is based on findings from the passed years that women in the threat of violence and living in the street very often refuse to seek help at the regular advisory and aid centers. Among other reasons it is because the regular low-threshold centers are hardly reachable for homeless women and they lack feeling of safety and a certain level of intimacy there; or these centers simply do not offer the needed service for them. Our project innovatively suggests providing the menaced women with services and with mobile consulting directly where they are, moreover with an emphasis put on an individual approach. These women in oppressive situation who are afflicted with violence will also be subsequently engaged to take active part in the project, too (research, campaign, bootstrap unit etc.), which can considerably help them to cope with their own situation.
