Crossroads Safehouse received a $449,513 grant from the Office on Violence Against Women, US Department of Justice that will be used to implement their Road to Home Rapid Rehousing program. The program will provide victims of domestic violence who are exiting emergency shelter with financial, rental, and housing-search assistance to help them find and maintain permanent housing, free from the threat of violence and abuse.
Planning for the Road to Home program began October 1, 2019 and will be fully operational beginning spring 2020. Once the program launches, participants of the Road to Home program will be able to access a wide range of financial assistance and supportive services. This assistance may include, as needed, short-term and medium-term rental assistance, rental arrears, rental application fees, security deposits, utility assistance, and moving costs. Participants will also be able to access case management to help with the housing search and leasing up process, as well as support in attaining other self-sufficiency goals for staying stably housed in the long term.
