What is Transitional Housing?

The Transitional Housing Program helps victims of sexual assault and domestic violence secure safe housing options as they transition out of the emergency shelter, flee from an abusive home, and/or recover from financial abuse (which 98% of victims of domestic violence experience). 

Beyond helping clients secure safe housing through rental assistance, DCFOF's Transitional Housing Program assists clients on their path to independence and well-being by providing services so that they are able to build a sustainable foundation for their new lives.

Our Housing Partners mean the world to us! Without their help and generosity, we could not successfully meet the needs of our clients. Housing Partners come in many different forms and operate in various capacities by providing services and support to our Transitional Housing clients. We are currently looking for Housing Partners that can provide moving assistance, transportation assistance, recurring furniture donations, and the ability to provide space for storage.
