RuT Community for Women

Residential community for older lesbian women

In a project similar to the Lebensort Vielfalt project in the gay community, RuT, the open initiative of lesbian women in Neukölln, is planning a residential and cultural center in Berlin for women who love women. The goal of the projects is to create affordable living space for women to live independently regardless of handicap and age.

The focus will be living in community as the residents age, 80 appartments including two assisted living units are planed. In addition, the centre will be a lively place with many leisure and cultural activities. Berlin is a pioneer in establishing such senior community living projects.

The project is still looking for support in order to buy the property in Neukölln.
