Webinar Presented by: National Alliance for Safe Housing, Minnesota’s Coalition for Battered Women and the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence
Flexible funding for survivors, coupled with survivor-driven, trauma-informed advocacy, can be an effective strategy for helping survivors to access and/or maintain housing by addressing the the economic impact of domestic violence. This webinar highlights the District Alliance for Safe Housing’s use of flex funding to swiftly provide cash assistance to address survivor’s housing barriers; Minnesota’s Coalition for Battered Women’s use of flex funding as a strategy for increasing survivors’ economic empowerment; and the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence’s incorporation of flex funding as a core component of their DV Housing First Model. Emphasis will be on survivor choice in identifying what they needed as a core component of flexible financial assistance.
