Closing the Gap: Integrating Services for Survivors of Domestic Violence Experiencing Homelessness - A Toolkit for Transitional Housing Programs


As a resource to facilitate the integration of the Domestic Violence (DV) and homeless service systems, the National Center on Family Homelessness has published, Closing the Gap: Integrating Services for Survivors of Domestic Violence Experiencing Homelessness - A Toolkit for Transitional Housing Programs.
By laying the groundwork to understand the intersection between DV and homelessness, this toolkit offers practical strategies that providers can follow to improve service integration.
For information on domestic violence and a listing of your state Coalition Against Domestic Violence, please visit the National Network to End Domestic Violence, Learn more about child and family homelessness at the National Center on Family Homelessness website.
The Homelessness Assistance Programs page provides information on assisting people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. It contains program guidance, reporting system support, and homelessness resources for Federal Agencies, government agencies, Continuum of Care organizations, homeless service providers, TA providers, persons experiencing homelessness, and other stakeholders.

Senator Cory Booker to Deliver Keynote at National Conference

Spotlight On...
Senator Cory Booker to Deliver Keynote at National Conference


The Alliance is proud to announce that New Jersey Senator Cory A. Booker will deliver a keynote address on Wednesday, July 30 at the luncheon plenary on the second day of the Alliance's 2014 National Conference on Ending Homelessness. The conference will take place at the Renaissance Washington, DC Hotel from July 29 to 31.
New Jersey's first ever African American senator, Senator Booker previously served as mayor of Newark, N.J., during which time he worked with New Jersey's Essex County and the Corporation for Supportive Housing to develop the Essex-Newark Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness.
Conference Reminder: Scholarship Deadline Approaching
The Alliance is still accepting applications for its scholarship and volunteer programs for its DC Conference. Only individuals who are currently experiencing homelessness or who have experienced homelessness in the past are eligible to apply. The deadline to submit an application is Tuesday, May 27. More information about the scholarship program and the application process is available on the scholarships page of the conference website.







The Senate will likely determine its 302(b) allocations (the amount of funding each appropriations subcommittee has to spend on programs under its purview) as soon as this Thursday, May 22, which will kick off the mark up process for most Senate appropriations subcommittees' spending bills.
House Returns from Recess
The House returned from their recess this Monday, May 19. The House will depart for recess for the Memorial Day holiday when session adjourns this Thursday, May 22 and will return next Wednesday, May 28. The Senate will depart when session adjourns this Friday, May 23, and will return on Monday, June 2.
The impact of Congress's decision to underfund HUD's homelessness programs in Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 won't be good for the people served by those programs. And while homeless programs won't face downsizing in FY 2014, their prospects in FY 2015 are far less certain. In this blog post, we look at what could happen.
Data Points: How Do We Know Rapid Re-Housing Works?
By Sam Batko
Unfortunately, there are few national studies on rapid re-housing. The national data on rapid re-housing that does exist comes from the evaluation of federal programs. In this post, we review what that evidence says about its effectiveness.
