Short-term housing assistance is provided through Project Horizon. This program requires that domestic violence survivors meet HUD (United States Department of Housing and Urban Development) homeless criteria.

Families in our Housing Program receive:

  • Assistance in locating & securing affordable housing in a new, safe community—since only after stable housing is established can other needs be addressed
  • Rental assistance
  • Help obtaining furnishings and needed household items to
    set up a new home
  • Referrals and linkage to childcare services, social service programs and other community organizations
  • Advocacy with Social Services, Social Security, courts,
    community organizations, and other systems
  • Referrals for training and education with the goal of sustainable employment
  • Budgeting and financial literacy education — including referrals to credit counseling programs
