Domestic Violence Housing First
“It’s not just housing, it’s a sense of identity.”
Domestic violence is a leading cause of homelessness for women and children. Domestic Violence Housing First is a partnership between the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence and domestic violence programs throughout the state of Washington working to eliminate housing as a reason for survivors to stay in abusive relationships.
