Scattered-Site Transitional Housing

Domestic violence is the leading cause of homelessness for families of domestic violence. Many victims face homelessness when they flee abusive home. Their experiences are confounded by economic instability, often perpetuated by abusers.

Our Scattered-Site Transitional Housing Program, Sanctuary of Hope, provides safe, affordable housing, counseling, and supportive services for families who have fled abusive relationships at locations in the greater Chicagoland area. Counselors work closely with clients to define and plan their educational, financial, and job-related goals and then work with landlords to establish homes for them and their families. Survivors are provided with financial assistance for rent and utilities and have access to all the resources and programs at A Safe Place.

Scattered-Site Transitional Housing includes:

  • Rental assistance with a monthly subsidy based on individual income
  • A personal savings account to ensure financial security for the future
  • Financial workshops and life skills education
  • An individualized safety and service plan to meet the needs of the survivor and their family
  • Access to A Safe Place counseling and support groups, supervised family visitations, legal advocacy, mentoring programs, and more

The Sanctuary of Hope Housing Program does not discriminate against any applicant on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, sex, national origin, age, familial status, ancestry, unfavorable military discharge, marital status, receipt of governmental assistance, or handicap.

The Sanctuary of Hope Housing Program does not discriminate on the basis of handicapped status in the admission or access to, or treatment or employment in, its federally assisted programs and activities.
