Welcome to our Holiday Toolbox! NRCDV has released information to the field, including Technical Assistance (TA) Guidance documents, as part of our Domestic Violence and the Holidays Series in preparation for the time period beginning the week of Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day (“the holidays”). These were developed to 1) respond to the common misperception that domestic violence increases during the holidays, and 2) provide support during a time that may be stressful for survivors of domestic violence and the programs that serve them.

The holiday season (defined here as the time period beginning the week of Thanksgiving through New Year's Day) can present both opportunities and challenges for survivors and advocates in shelter. This Technical Assistance Guidance discusses some issues to consider as programs work with survivors and their families during this time of year. Offering a range of supportive programing can increase the chances that residents will have a positive shelter experience. Included are practical, cost-effective interventions, which may be easily adopted at any shelter program.
