Advocates to End Domestic Violence ARE Housing Advocates

Survivors of Domestic Violence Face Many Barriers to Safety Including Poor Credit, Ruined Rental Histories, Lack of Steady Employment, Housing Discrimination, and Loss of Subsidized or Other Affordable Housing.

“Victims of domestic violence struggle to find permanent housing after fleeing abusive relationships.

As long-term housing options become scarcer, victims are staying longer in emergency domestic violence shelters. As a result, shelters are frequently full and must turn families away.”
