Helping DV Survivors Achieve Safe & Stable Housing


Dr. Cris Sullivan, NRCDV’s research advisor for Safe Housing Partnerships, reviews evidence on the efficacy of various housing approaches for survivors of domestic violence, specifically:

• Flexible funding (enabling survivors to remain securely housed in their current residences)

• Transitional Housing • Housing First (specifically, the DVHF model adapted for domestic violence survivors)

• Rapid Rehousing

The effort to achieve long-term safety and housing stability must be supported by more affordable housing and an increase in available housing options to meet diverse needs.
