HOUSING FOR CHILDREN – SECURITY DEPOSIT
Your first step towards affordable housing.
We rarely think about how much it means to us “to have a home” and that many children do not have a real home at all. That is why the “Housing for Children – Security Deposit” project helps to secure and decent housing for single parents and their children.
Housing for children: why do we help?
Security deposits may sometimes be as high as three times the monthly rent and many single parents cannot afford to pay so much. They are then forced to live with their children in shelters, various dormitories or with friends on a temporary basis. An environment like that is certainly not suitable for children.
How do we help?
- We provide a contribution towards a security deposit in the amount of up to CZK 25,000 to single parents across the Czech Republic. We always pay the contribution into the account of the flat owner – not to the applicant. However, we check the applicant thoroughly. This way, the money gets where it is needed.
- After termination of the lease, the contribution will be returned to the transparent account of Women for Women, o.p.s. Unless the client causes the termination of the lease by breaching the lease contract, he/she may apply for the contribution again.
- We assess the situation of single parents on a case-by-case basis. If necessary, we can also help you pay the rent and provide psychological assistance or legal services.
