Housing Assistance Safe, secure, affordable housing is a struggle to get and keep for many DV survivors. SAVE provides wide range of housing support through our Domestic Violence Housing First (DVHF) program. Services include financial assistance with: move-in costs, ongoing rental assistance, other housing-related costs such as utility bills, household items, etc. Advocates provide ongoing case management designed to help survivors obtain and maintain safe long-term housing. The road to stable, independent living can be a long one. SAVE is here to help eliminate barriers along the way. To work with a Housing First Case Manager to find out where you are in your housing journey, call our 24-hour Crisis Line at 510-794-6055 any time! How it works: A SAVE advocate or case manager can do an initial assessment and see if you might qualify for housing assistance. The program can provide one-time assistance or ongoing help depending on your needs and the program’s capacity. 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 and 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 goals.
