What do our shelters offer?

Purpose of our shelters

A stay at EKF aims to help women out of homelessness and to ensure that each woman achieves the greatest possible independence in her own life. The aim is to strengthen the women's recognition of physical, cognitive and social resources and challenges.

A shelter with a strong vision

At EKF, the vision is "woman first", which forms the basis for an appreciative communication and individual approach to each woman and her wishes and needs. This creates a basis for providing the best possible support so that the woman can take responsibility for her own life and future. We are not here to condemn the individual woman's life situation, and we only want to advise and help within the framework that the woman allows us to. With us, the focus is on the woman.

Our care home values

Empowerment, trust, integrity and professionalism
The values form the basis for the approach in the daily work and are seen in the interaction with the woman. Based on the woman's wishes and needs, we create the conditions for the woman to make real choices based on her own resources and thus take responsibility for her own life.

Purpose of our shelters

I et voldeligt forhold er det ikke kun de fysiske skader, der forårsager den mest langvarige smerte. Økonomisk vold er en skjult form for overgreb, der kan have dybtgående og ødelæggende konsekvenser for dem, der udsættes for det. Men hvad er økonomisk vold, hvordan manifesterer det sig, og hvordan kan Ellestedet hjælpe dig, hvis du er fanget i et mønster af økonomisk kontrol og manipulation?

"Ellestedet has meant everything to me. I have really gotten professional help. I have been protected. My stressed-out body has been given time and peace to calm down. I have been pampered with food and massage, and the staff are there for you night and day. I wish that those who are sitting at home in an abusive marriage dare to take the step to come here"From a woman ❤️#Ellestedet #kvindekrisecenter #liveftervold #kvinder #kvindekrisecenterfyn
Today is Women's Day, and of course we celebrate it at Ellestedet in our own quiet way. Country singer Maj-Britt Nikolajsen from Funen will stop by with her guitar and her warm voice to soften our hearts. The music reminds us how strong we are when we support and help each other in a difficult time #Ellestedet #IWD2024 #InspireInclusion #kvindekrisecenterfyn #supportwomen
Are you a good hairdresser or do you know someone who is? We are looking for a volunteer hairdresser who will come once in a while and trim the locks of the women who stay with us for a longer period of time and who therefore need a little work on the outside to feel better on the inside.  If this is you or someone you know, we would love to hear from you #Ellestedet #hairdresser #women's crisis center #volunteer #contact #kvinderkrisecenterfyn
