Becoming stably housed is an important piece of finding safety for Survivors of domestic violence. Domestic violence advocates are in a key position to help Survivors identify their long-term housing needs and to provide information about the options that are available. This course explores new and trending housing options and best practices for working with Survivors to meet their long-term housing needs.
The information presented provides a broad overview of current housing approaches, protections, and best practices and can serve as a guide when assisting Survivors seeking housing and/or protections. This information can change over time therefore, it is recommended that you develop a working relationship with housing partners in your community, your Continuum of Care, and the Housing Program Manager at Violence Free Colorado to stay as up to date as possible. You will earn 2 credit hours for successfully completing this course.
