Housing Assistance

Safe, secure, affordable housing is a struggle to get and keep for many domestic violence survivors. SAVE provides housing assistance through supportive programs like:

  • The Domestic Violence Housing First (DVHF) program offers a range of housing assistance such as move-in costs, rental assistance, and help with utilities as well as ongoing case management support.
  • Mariposa Project is designed for survivors who are interested and able to participate in job training or other employment activities that will lead to living-wage jobs. Participants in the program may receive rental subsidies for up to a year along with supportive services like case management, budgeting assistance, and life skill workshops. 

You may qualify for housing assistance if:

  • You have experienced (or are experiencing) intimate partner abuse; AND
  • You are homeless or at risk of losing your housing without assistance

 How it works:

  • Any SAVE advocate or case manager can do an initial assessment to see if you might qualify for housing assistance.
  • The program can provide one-time assistance or ongoing help depending on your needs.
  • Participants can request assistance with any financial need that is jeopardizing their housing. For example, if a lack of transportation is causing you to miss work making it hard for you to pay rent we may be able to provide you with bus tickets or gas money.
  • Program participants will work with a case manager to identify housing challenges and create realistic solutions.
