Best Practices: Rapid Re-Housing for Survivors of Domestic Violence

Home Free is a domestic violence victim service agency in Portland, Oregon that provides an array of services including a hotline, emergency housing assistance, advocacy, support groups, and child- and teen-programs for families impacted by violence. In 2003, the program closed their emergency shelter and developed a Housing First program to more effectively meet the housing needs of survivors. Currently, the program provides rapid re-housing assistance to 80 to 100 households annually.
