2017 Safe Housing Needs Assessment: Results Overview
In 2017, the National Alliance for Safe Housing, in collaboration with the Domestic Violence and Housing TA Consortium and other key partners, developed and disseminated a national Safe Housing Needs Assessment to gather input from community service providers, coalitions and continuums of care. This assessment -- the first of its kind -- aimed at simultaneously reaching the domestic and sexual violence field and the homeless and housing field. It gathered information on topics ranging from the extent to which both fields coordinate to provide safety and access to services for domestic and sexual violence survivors within the homeless system, to ways in which programs are implementing innovative models to promote long-term housing stability for survivors and their families. This report provides an overview of the key findings from the 2,000+ people who participated in the needs assessment.
