A Message from Our Partners at the National Alliance for Safe Housing and National Resource Center on Domestic Violence

The National Alliance for Safe Housing (NASH), in collaboration with the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV), the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence (NRCDV), and Collaborative Solutions, Inc (CS), also known as the Domestic Violence and Housing Consortium TA Team and other local, state, and national stakeholders, developed this Safe Housing Needs Assessment to gather input from victim service providers, community service providers, coalitions, and continuums of care (CoCs).
This assessment is the first of its kind aimed at simultaneously reaching the domestic and sexual violence field, as well as the homeless and housing field. The assessment seeks to identify specific barriers preventing collaboration across these fields, as well as promising practices. As a key stakeholder in this historic assessment, your participation will directly change the awareness, understanding, and collaboration that is essential in meeting the needs of the field. Your responses will determine the results to help provide organizations and communities with the tools, strategies, and support necessary to improve coordination between domestic violence/sexual assault service providers and homeless and housing service providers, so that survivors and their children can ultimately avoid homelessness and live free from violence.
The needs assessment should take 10-15 minutes. The assessment will close on August 4, 2017. It can be completed on your computer or mobile device. Begin the needs assessment.
Should you have any questions please contact Larisa Kofman, Director, NASH, at lkofman@dashdc.org or Christie Bevis, Director of Safe Housing Practices & Initiatives, NRCDV, at cbevis@nrcdv.org.
