Closing the Gap: Integrating Services for Survivors of Domestic Violence Experiencing Homelessness, A Toolkit for Transitional Housing Programs

General Material
Published Date
January, 2013

By laying the groundwork to understand the intersection between domestic violence and homelessness, this toolkit offers practical strategies that providers can follow to improve service integration.

”The literature review, survey, and interviews revealed three main levels for improving collaboration across DV and homeless systems: Awareness and Understanding; Communication and Coordination; and Collaboration. This toolkit discusses each level and highlights practical strategies that providers can apply in each. The toolkit also offers a framework for understanding levels of integration that will help close the gap between the DV and homeless service systems. The ultimate goal is to improve the lives of DV survivors who experience homelessness through enhanced service integration.”
