PADV's Supportive Housing Program

PADV’s Supportive Housing Program provides an essential bridge to self-sufficiency for domestic violence survivors and their children. In addition to paying a portion of families’ rent, PADV provides ongoing support, crisis management, connection with mental health services, counseling and assistance with food, legal advocacy, childcare, personal care items and transportation.

Our supportive housing program has grown substantially over the past year; we now serve more than 230 people in community-based apartments. Children who left our shelter program to join our housing program shared their excitement for the big move:

"I'm happy that I'm leaving, but at the same time, I'm going to miss everyone I have gotten close to."

"I am excited to find us a new house. I want a swimming pool!"

"I feel good, but I’m going to miss everyone."
