About Anna

Anna is a counseling service for people in prostitution in sponsorship of Diakonisches Werk Heidelberg. Anna exists since 01.07.2018. The name is based on the well-known Heidelberg woman Anna Blum (* 1843 to † 1917), who has been committed to socially disadvantaged women and their rights.

Prostitution is a complex field in which people are affected by stigmatization, prejudice and exclusion, as in no other area. The reasons for engaging in prostitution are diverse, ranging from a self-determined decision to great economic poverty and dependencies. Regardless of the reasons for prostitution, we offer all those seeking advice comprehensive support and try to reach them with our offers.

The consulting offer Anna is funded by the city of Heidelberg.
