Home Sweet/Safe Home

Does safe and affordable housing for battered women seem like a distant dream? This course will help you get oriented in the sea of housing options and help you think critically about how our movement is responding to survivors’ needs. Inside the course, you’ll find information about the barriers battered women face when trying to access and maintain safe housing, how the housing system currently works, and an in-depth analysis of our current sheltering system and how it meshes with the greater philosophy of the battered women’s movement. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to do some critical thinking in the comfort of your own office! You can earn up to 8 training hours for this course.
