Housing

Our Goal

Clients receiving shelter may be eligible to participate in our Housing Program.  The main goal of the program is to enable clients to stay in a home and live self-sufficiently once they have completed the program.  Our Housing Program is funded through HUD to provide homeless domestic violence victims with rental assistance for up to two years.

Support Services

We offer a variety of services to help clients start new lives after leaving an abusive relationship.   Services available to families and individuals include financial assistance to pay deposits, rent and utilities, childcare, and education expenses.  Clients also have access to supportive services such as, case management, individual and group counseling, financial literacy, job support/training, life-skills, and a variety of other services.

More Than Housing

Our Housing Program provides more than just access to affordable housing and support services to assist survivors in attaining housing stability, safety, self-sufficiency, and independent living.  We adhere to a “housing first” and trauma-informed care model which, through the use of motivational interviewing, assures that clients’ basic needs are met first.  When clients’ basic needs are met, this provides a solid foundation on which they’re able to work towards other goals.

Importance of Housing

Ultimately, our Housing Team works to eliminate the pressure of a client returning to his/her abusive relationship due to a lack of safety, housing, and financial stability.  Without our services and support, domestic abuse survivors might feel obligated to return to an abusive home in order to avoid being homeless.
