Advocacy at the Intersection of Domestic Violence, Housing, and Homelessness

Event Date
Thursday, July 13, 2017, 12:00PM

This webinar will assist domestic violence advocates and other victim service providers in advocating at the individual and systemic levels for the housing-related needs of domestic violence survivors. There is a high correlation between experiences of domestic violence and homelessness or housing instability, and many survivors cite housing as among their greatest needs. However, many advocates find it challenging to engage with complex housing systems and provide effective advocacy at this intersection. This webinar will lay a foundation for understanding survivors’ housing-related needs and explore strategies for providing individual and system level advocacy. Resources will also be provided on where to learn more about domestic violence, housing, and homelessness, as well as best practices and promising programs that help meet those needs.

The discussion will include:

  • Statistics and information about the correlation between domestic violence and homelessness
  • Common barriers that survivors face when trying to access housing
  • Strategies for engaging in individual and system level advocacy
  • Examples of innovative, successful housing-related programs
  • Resources on where to access more information, including in-depth technical assistance

After this training, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the relationship between domestic violence and homelessness, as well as the range of housing-related needs survivors might have
  • Access best practices and supporting resources to inform and promote safe housing options
  • Identify at least two strategies for strengthening their housing-related advocacy
