Sheltering and Housing Brief

Domestic violence is one of the main causes of homelessness among Canadian families. Fleeing an abusive partner is not only a factor in women becoming homeless, but also influences their continued homelessness, because it is unsafe to return home to a partner or live in a place that the abusive partner may be able to find and access. When they are not able to remain in their homes or communities because of their abuse, women may try to access a spectrum of housing options that includes short-term emergency shelters, second-stage shelters, transitional housing, housing first, permanent or subsidized housing.
