Transitional Housing Services for Victims of Domestic Violence: A Report from the Housing Committee of the National Task Force to End Sexual and Domestic Violence
Though the landscape in terms of housing resources for DV/SA survivors has changed substantially over the past decade, this report compiled in 2005 remains a helpful and comprehensive description of the transitional housing model, as exemplified by the commonalities and uniqueness across 12 programs studied in their many aspects.
This policy and practice paper highlights how eight domestic violence organizations are responding to the housing needs of battered women in their communities. There are many different aspects to building housing programs, including resource acquisition, building collaborations with other agencies, and program development. The summaries in this report describe how eight programs tackled these issues.
