Domestic violence is often a contributor or cause of homelessness. Escaping abusive situations means leaving the residence where the abuse is occurring and sometimes victims are unable to find shelter through friends, family, or available community resources. Understanding the challenges of being homeless, and the statistics about homelessness and domestic violence may help encourage victims to plan how they leave when they leave, what circumstances they leave under, and where they go, as this article explains.

  • 16% of homeless persons are victims of domestic violence. Source: The U.S. Conference of Mayors 2013 Status Report on Hunger & Homelessness, A 25-City Survey (2013).

  • The Need for Safe Housing: In just one day in 2015, over 31,500 adults and children fleeing domestic violence found refuge in a domestic violence emergency shelter or transitional housing program.

  • That same day, domestic violence programs were unable to meet over 12,197 requests for services because of a lack of funding, staffing, or other resources.

  • Sixty-three percent (7,728) of unmet requests were for housing. Emergency shelter and transitional housing continue to be the most urgent unmet needs for domestic violence survivors.

The Aspiration House™ will be temporary housing for 25 families who are survivors of domestic violence. Here, families will have a safe place to heal. They will receive counseling, clothing, food, mentoring. They will be helped to become better.
