The need for safe, affordable housing for victims of domestic violence is well documented, and without access to housing options, victims fleeing from abusive relationships are often forced to live in substandard conditions or return to their abusers. While many victims only need short-term, emergency shelter, others face numerous barriers to achieving independence and require long-term housing assistance as well as a variety of transitional support services.
At SPAN, the Transitional Services Program focuses on supporting survivors of domestic violence and their families through case management, community advocacy and appropriate community referrals for individualized needs in order to help victims in achieving emotional and financial self-sufficiency. Individuals can also seek support to find other housing options, connect with government assistance benefits through the online PEAK program and meeting other basic needs.
