Domestic Violence and Homelessness

Persons experiencing domestic violence, particularly women and children with limited economic resources, are at increased vulnerability to homelessness. HUD recognizes this intersection between domestic violence and homelessness and wants stakeholders to share in their commitment to finding effective ways to serve this population. This page provides resources related to the intersection between intimate partner violence (IPV), housing instability, and homelessness, and seeks to ensure that survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking have access to safe and affordable housing.
