Frauenhorizonte e.V. is Freiburg’s point of contact and counseling center for women who have experienced sexual violence. We offer comprehensive counseling and support for women and girls who have experienced rape, sexual assault, harassment or other forms of sexual violence. We help to work through the social, physical and psychological effects and to develop coping strategies.


Frauenhorizonte e.V. works intensively in the field of victim protection and offers women comprehensive support both in their decision-making process and during and after criminal proceedings for all desired and necessary steps.


The team of Frauenhorizonte e.V. consists of psychologists and social workers who are specially trained for the special situation of traumatized women.


In the first hours or days after a sexual assault, professional counselors are available around the clock - even at night and on weekends - for immediate help!


Immediately after the crime, we accompany women to the outpatient clinic of the University Women's Clinic for examination or forensic evidence. If the victim wants to press charges, we also accompany her to the police.


Our psychologist offers crisis intervention and short-term therapy to help women deal with the trauma and refers them to therapists in private practice to counteract the psychological consequences of the crime.


Frauenhorizonte e.V. is financed by the city of Freiburg and with smaller subsidies from the districts of Emmendingen and Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald. Since these do not cover the costs, Frauenhorizonte e.V. is dependent on its own funds of about 32,000 € per year - from donations, fines, and foundation funds.


Your referral will help women overcome the physical and psychological effects of sexual assault!
