Safe at Home Program

Program Summary

Three Safe at Home case managers work with families who have graduated from WAA's residential facilities to help them secure and maintain safe and affordable housing. Clients received assistance with relocating, maintaining independent housing, budgeting finances, and other essential life skills.

Program Detail

Sojourner House and Safe at Home provide a crucial link in the continuum of care for victims of domestic violence. WAA's safe haven must assist residents to exit quickly in order to have room for the next person in need of emergency assistance; yet, the maximum ninety days is not enough time for many people to reach a point of living on their own. By providing the longer-term support, Sojourner House and Safe at Home increase the chances that a family will not have to return to an abusive home and free up room in the shelter for the next person in need of services. Currently Sojourner House is undergoing a renovation that will sustain the life of the current apartment buildings and provide three additional apartments, increasing the capacity of the program.
