We Prevent Family Homelessness
Domestic violence is a leading cause of homelessness for women and children. When a survivor comes to us in crisis, they often have nowhere else to turn.
homelessness & Housing Stability services
At LifeWire, we believe that no survivor should have to choose between staying in an abusive relationship and becoming homeless. That’s why we’ve developed a wide range of services that are uniquely designed to keep domestic violence survivors and their families off the streets and in safe and stable housing.
- My Sister’s Home, LifeWire’s confidential emergency shelter, serves families and individuals facing lethal situations. Because our shelter is made up of individual apartments, we can welcome all types of families and individuals. In addition to housing services, residents receive family and children’s advocacy services.
- Through My Friend’s Place, our communal living shelter, we provide confidential transitional housing and support services for families healing from both domestic violence and chemical dependency.
- Flexible funds help survivors keep or find housing by stopping evictions and paying move-in costs, utilities and other expenses.
- Short-term rental assistance supports families as they transition into permanent, safe and stable housing.
