The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Family and Youth Service Bureau’s Family Violence Prevention and Services Program invites you to learn about approaches that work to help families impacted by domestic violence by providing access to housing and trauma-informed supportive services. This webinar will feature the Oregon Volunteer of America’s Home Free Program and the Washington State Coalition’s Domestic Violence (WSCADV) Housing First Program. Presenters will specifically discuss two rapid re-housing programs designed to assist individuals and families impacted by domestic violence.
Oregon’s Home Free Program and WSCADV’s Domestic Violence Housing First (DVHF) focus on helping domestic violence survivors retain or access safe permanent housing quickly—often bypassing emergency shelters. Participants receive tailored services to help them maintain that housing based on their unique needs. Kris Billhardt, Director of the Home Free Program, and Linda Olsen, Housing Program Coordinator with the WSCADV, will discuss their programming frameworks and critical programming considerations and share the outcomes of their program evaluations.
