Survivors of domestic violence have both short and long-term housing needs that must be met so that they do not have to choose between staying with an abusive partner and residing in shelter or on the streets. These families face unique challenges that require unique solutions.

The above presentations were made at the February 2008 National Conference on Ending Family Homelessness. Workshop speakers focused on increasing family safety and financial and housing security while helping families cope with and overcome the effects of trauma and violence.
