Hope Housing

"Safe Harbor Housing has been a blessing. It has taught my family so much and they have been very supportive. Safe Harbor Housing has saved us."- Safe Harbor Housing Resident

One of the main reasons a domestic violence survivor stays with an abusive partner is lack of affordable housing. Safe Harbor Hope Housing offers a comprehensive approach to re-housing domestic violence survivors and their families by providing an affordable place to stay, helping them get access to needed services, like WIC or job training, and dealing with the aftereffects of violence through support groups and parenting classes. Housing is available for 24-months to survivors with dependent children.

Built in 2003, Safe Harbor Hope Housing offers:

  • Ten comfortable two- and three-bedroom furnished apartments in a secured building;
  • Classes covering key topics, such as parenting, money management, self esteem, and assertiveness;
  • Children's services, including educational and support groups and tutoring;
  • Legal assistance with the protective order or stalking injunction process and on-site clinics provided by Utah Legal Services;
  • Case management that helps residents create a personal development plan and connects them to a network of area service providers for: medical care, child care, resume writing, food, job training, job placement, Interview skills, utility bill subsidization.

    Offering these complete services helps residents achieve personal and financial independence in permanent housing, moving themselves and their children away from violence.

    Safe Harbor Hope Housing is vital for strengthening the community in Davis County. Almost half of all homeless families are victims of domestic violence and families are one of the fastest growing segments of the homeless population. (National Coalition Domestic Violence 2001 Report & HUD 2010 Homelessness Assessment Report) Recent Utah point-in-time homeless numbers show domestic violence was the number one cause of homelessness in Davis County.
