Hope House, Inc.

Program Summary:
The Independence Strivin' Committee has identified the need to increase the community's capacity to ensure the safety and housing stability of survivors of domestic violence. Residents of Hawthorne Place Apartments who have experienced domestic violence need and deserve access to dedicated, full-time staff with training on the issues of domestic violence and trauma. Additionally, research shows that the most successful interventions need to be provided on-site and at the time they are needed to fully address survivors' current safety needs and barriers to housing stability.

Hope House's Targeted Domestic Violence Program will address the identified need and bridge the current gap in services that has been identified by the Independence Strivin' Committee. Project staff will provide on-site advocacy and therapy services for residents of Hawthorne Place Apartments who are currently or have previously experienced domestic violence.
