Online offers: diverse and numerous
The first port of call when searching is often the Internet. This is where you can find the classic platforms for finding accommodation. We have listed a few here that have a large offer. You can often filter according to the number of rooms and rent, so only apartments that are interesting for you will be displayed:
- Wanted: shared flats, often there are also shared flats with other single parents (WG-Searched).
In addition to these websites, there are other online offers which are not exclusively intended for the search for accommodation, but often offer a more personal platform. It is worthwhile to have the following pages in view:
- Facebook Groups (enter apartments + your city in the search bar)
- Nebenan.de, especially if you want to stay in your neighbourhood (Next door).
Offline offers: local and personal
The following contact points can be reached analogously and can offer you competent support:
- Housing cooperatives: Here you have to become a member and buy interest-bearing shares
- Tenants' associations, such as the tenant advisory service
People who are in similar situations or have already mastered them can be a great help. See if there is a club of single or separated parents in your city. The Association of single mothers and fathers, for example, is represented in some federal states. They often have a large and active network.
If you are looking for a place to stay because you or your children experience or are threatened by domestic violence, you have the possibility to find refuge in a safe place. Contact a counselling centre, which will find you a place to stay in your city. (Information centre).
