Strong Foundation for Healing: Shelter and Sexual Violence
Securing safe, stable housing is virtually impossible for many, especially people living in poverty or those dependent on a perpetrator. We know that survivors are resourceful. Yet as they do what it takes to survive, moving from place to place and changing phone numbers (often several times), they often drift out of rape crisis, domestic violence, or other social services. When multiple victimizations, various forms of oppression, chemical dependence, or mental illness come into play, survivors face formidable barriers to accessing services and shelter. Housing advocacy can be an invaluable resource for survivors on so many levels. Author/source: The Resource Sharing Project.
