District of Columbia Survivor Toolkit

Abstract

If you are a survivor of domestic violence, there are laws that give you rights. This Toolkit will let you know what they are if you want to stay in your apartment, move out, or find another place to live — whether it’s a shelter, apartment, or house. This toolkit tells you: (1) What to do if you need to find safe housing, (2) What to do if you want to stay where you are, (3) What to do if you want to leave your home, (4) Where the rights come from, and (5) Who can help you. The Toolkit also gives you sample demand letters you might need and a glossary that explains some terms you might not know.
