We often think of domestic violence survivors when we think of shelter services, but sexual violence survivors need shelter and housing too. Escaping sexual violence is one of the main causes of homelessness and being homeless dramatically increases one’s risk of being sexually assaulted. Adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse need shelter, trafficked survivors need shelter, elder survivors need shelter. All survivors of sexual violence need a stable, trauma informed environment to heal. Join Elizabeth Bauer from the Resource Sharing Project as we focus on the specific shelter and housing needs of sexual violence survivors.
