Safe housing is essential to survivors’ ability to recover from violence and move forward with their lives. Ensuring access to safe and affordable housing, whether short- or long-term, subsidized or unsubsidized, private or public, requires a range of strategies and approaches that help restore survivors’ safety, stability and self-determination.
We can ensure that all survivors of domestic and sexual violence have access to safe housing across the spectrum of the housing system by employing these four key strategies:
- Creating Safe Temporary Housing
- Facilitating Access to Safe Permanent Housing
- Preventing Homelessness
- Survivor-Centered Services
