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).
