Housing Domestic Violence Survivors
Domestic Violence survivors are a special population in housing services and face many distinct and challenging circumstances related to confidentiality and safety. Many domestic violence survivors fall into homelessness as a result of their situation or associated issues, however their specific confidentiality needs can be a barrier to gaining access to housing services. The Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness, the Department of Housing, and the Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence have collaborated to create a pathway to overcome these barriers.
By creating a way for domestic violence survivors to get onto the prioritized housing services lists, this population will be able to gain access to resources such as rapid re-housing and permanent supportive housing while maintaining their confidentiality .
