Transitional Housing Wish List

The DVIS Transitional Housing facility is a long-term housing option for community members escaping domestic or sexual violence. Survivors are able to live in these fully-furnished spaces for up to 2 years, and the apartment units vary between 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, and 3 bedroom options.  

Our units are open to survivors of any identity. Supportive care like safety planning, individual counseling, group counseling, case management, advocacy through referrals to other social service providers, and assistance with transportation needs are available to all residents.
