Cash-strapped women’s hostel receives financial support

The Liebfrauenhof Foundation (Stiftung Liebfrauenhof) is responsible for the hostel for women. This offers protection, accommodation and counselling to women and their children who are affected by violence.

The operation of the shelter for women (Herberge für Frauen) is currently running at a loss, as the Zug Cantonal Government wrote in a recent press release. The Canton of Zug is therefore supporting the Liebfrauenhof Foundation with an annual contribution of CHF 30,000 for the operation of the hostel from 2024 to 2027.

At the same time, the Security Directorate (Sicherheitsdirektion) is working to create a legal basis for an agreement. This agreement should include an annual contribution to the hostel for women from the state coffers from 2028 on.
