Find out how affordable housing is critical to addressing domestic violence and supporting survivors, and how housing advocates can support.
Affordable housing is critical to addressing domestic violence and supporting survivors, and increasingly so during our current health and economic crisis. For most of us, sheltering in place at home is safe, away from disease or danger. For those who are living with emotional or physical abuse and violence, it is an especially isolating and frightening time.
Join South Bay domestic violence services and advocacy agencies Next Door Solutions to Domestic Violence, Community Solutions, and YWCA in understanding the intersection between domestic violence and affordable housing. Speakers will cover the needs of effective strategies for providing housing to survivors, current partnerships, and how housing advocates and providers can support and get involved. Speakers are:
Jennifer Lopes, Sr. Director of Housing Development at YWCA
Esther Peralez-Dieckmann, Executive Director at Next Door Solutions to Domestic Violence
Aida Zaldivar, Program Manager at Community Solutions
This Affordable Housing Month event is in partnership with SV@Home and co-sponsored by the Latina Coalition of Silicon Valley.
Registered participants will receive a webinar link prior to the event.
