The Intersection of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault Homelessness and Housing

Housing First and Rapid Re-Housing for Domestic Violence Survivors

In November, the National Alliance for Safe Housing (NASH), in coordination with the Domestic Violence & Housing Technical Assistance Consortium, will host two webinars highlighting safe housing options for people encountering domestic violence or sexual assault.

The webinars will support local providers working at the intersection of domestic violence and sexual assault, homelessness, and housing.

On Friday, November 17, 2017, the first webinar, “Intersection of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, and Homelessness,” will explain the connections between domestic violence and sexual assault, homelessness, and housing, underscoring that domestic violence-related homelessness is family homelessness. The webinar will take place on the 17th from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m.

The webinar will also explore how modifications to the Rapid Re-housing model can boost its effectiveness with survivors. The webinar take place on November 28 from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m.
