Safe, affordable housing is not only a basic human right and need; safe, affordable housing is a critical component of the healing process for sexual violence victims and survivors. Too many victims and survivors lose their housing as a result of sexual violence or find themselves trapped in homes where they have to endure further sexual victimization because there are no other affordable, safe options. When public policies and practices are informed by the housing needs of sexual violence victims and survivors, society can do much to alleviate the burden of sexual violence not only on individual victims and survivors, but on larger communities. This report provides a summary of key findings from a national survey of advocates on housing and sexual violence.

This report is a part of the Housing and Sexual Violence Information Packet. The packet also includes: an overview; a fact sheet; a research brief; an online resource collection; a technical assistance bulletin; and an advocate's guide to housing and sexual violence.
