Funders Together to End Homelessness is partnering with the Domestic Violence & Housing Technical Assistance Consortium (DVHTAC) to host a 3-part webinar series highlighting the intersection of domestic and sexual violence and housing and homelessness. We encourage funders to register for the entire series, which is designed to help you build strong partnerships and effective community responses to ending homelessness for survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
Webinar 1: Introduction to the intersection: Domestic Violence, Sexual Violence, Housing, and Homelessness 101
Persons experiencing domestic and sexual violence, particularly women and children, communities of color, and LGBTQ communities with limited economic resources, are at increased vulnerability to homelessness. This webinar will explain the intersection between domestic and sexual violence and homelessness; highlight effective strategies for stakeholders to share in their commitment to finding effective ways to serve this population; provide a deeper understanding of the specific barriers survivors face in accessing and maintaining safe housing; address the role of effective partnerships across the homeless and victim service provider systems; and explore innovative housing model approaches to address the myriad of safe housing needs for survivors.
Funders will walk away from this webinar with a deeper understanding about the intersection between these systems and how they can support stronger partnerships and housing solutions for domestic and sexual violence survivors.

About the Domestic Violence and Housing Technical Assistance Consortium
The Consortium, launched in 2015, provides training, technical assistance, and resource development at the critical intersection of homelessness and domestic violence and sexual assault. Funded by a partnership between the U.S. Department of Justice, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Consortium supports a TA Team of four national organizations: Collaborative Solutions, the National Alliance for Safe Housing, the National Network to End Domestic Violence, and the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence. The Consortium works collaboratively to improve policies and practices that strengthen efforts to build safe and supportive housing options for domestic and sexual violence survivors.
