Domestic Violence Toolkit
This toolkit provides resources communities can use to provide rapid re-housing for domestic violence survivors. While rapid re-housing has proven effective as a method of ending homelessness for survivors, there are valuable lessons to learn from those who have been successful in operating these programs.
Communities are increasingly using rapid re-housing to meet the needs of domestic violence survivors. In some instances, domestic violence providers are the entity rapidly re-housing survivors and, in some instances, survivors are being served in the traditional homeless assistance system sometimes with and sometimes without domestic violence service providers. While rapid re-housing has proven effective as a method of ending homelessness for survivors, there are needed adaptations to the model to keep survivors and staff safe as well as valuable lessons to learn from those who have been successful in operating these programs.
This toolkit, the recorded training, and other resources below were developed in cooperation with Catalyst Consulting and Training, Clackamas Women’s Services, the District Alliance for Safe Housing (DASH), Home Free (a Volunteers of America – Oregon program), and the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The Alliance is grateful for the contributions of these groups in helping to make these resources available.
