Summary
  • "Housing matters for everyone, as it provides shelter, security, privacy, and stability. For survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV), housing takes on an additional meaning; it is the key to establishing a new life, free from abuse. IPV survivors often face such inadequate housing options, however, that they must make excruciating choices between cycling through temporary shelters, becoming homeless, or returning to their abusers.Home Safe Home offers a multifaceted analysis that accounts for both IPV survivors' needs and the practical challenges involved in providing them with adequate permanent housing. Incorporating the varied perspectives of the numerous housing providers, activists, policymakers, and researchers who have a stake in these issues, the book also lets IPV survivors have their say, expressing their views on what housing and services can best meet their short and long-term goals. Researchers Hilary Botein and Andrea Hetling not only examine the federal and state policies and funding programs determining housing for IPV survivors, but also provide detailed case studies that put a human face on these policy issues.As it traces how housing options and support mechanisms for IPV survivors have evolved over time, Home Safe Home also offers innovative suggestions for how policymakers and advocates might work together to better meet the needs of this vulnerable population"--
  • "Housing matters for everyone. Decent housing provides shelter, security, privacy, stability, and, for homeowners, a means to build assets. For survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV), housing takes on an additional meaning; it is the key to establishing a new life free from abuse. IPV survivors often face inadequate housing options, forcing them to choose among unappealing options, such as cycling through temporary shelters, becoming homeless, or returning to an abuser. Home Safe Home bridges the divide among various disciplines and actors to explore both the needs of IPV survivors and the practicalities of programs, policies, and funding, and in doing so, analyzes how to design and expand appropriate, effective, and feasible housing models for survivors. The story that the book tells is specific and rooted concretely in the issues of IPV and housing, but also general in that it illustrates the varied influences that shape social policy. Through case studies, historical and contemporary descriptions of policies and programs, and interviews with survivors, advocates, and providers, the book leads its reader through the process of defining and understanding the challenges and presents an innovative approach and next steps. We propose a housing continuum that begins with emergency shelters and proceeds directly to long-term housing options, without time limits and with trauma-informed supports designed to provide stability and, for some, also the flexibility to move on to other homes"--
