HOUSING SUPPORT FOR ADVOCACY
We provide emergency housing for survivors actively fleeing Domestic Violence.
In 2022 we started 30-day Emergency Housing in a fully furnished Apartment. This will give a survivor time to work with an advocate to find permanent housing.
We have a tri-plex apartment unit with 1-2 bedrooms and 2-1 bedrooms.
This unit is for 12 months and is for survivors fleeing Intimate Partner Domestic Violence. Each unit comes with a garage, utilities included, Wi-Fi, Free onsite laundry, and Keycard access. Survivors will also work with an advocate to have an action plan for permanent housing. Rent is 25% of income. These units were updated fall of 2023 in phase 1. Phase 2 will be completed in the winter of 2024.
Ways to Demonstrate Your Support
