The Role of a Domestic Violence Advocate in Shelter Diversion
Shelter Diversion is a strategy that prevents homelessness at the front door by helping domestic violence survivors identify immediate, alternative housing arrangements to shelter and, if necessary, connecting them with services and financial assistance to help them return to permanent housing. Diversion is a service, not the absence or denial of service. It is the art and science of finding safe and appropriate alternatives to shelter use. This training will introduce the concept of shelter diversion, the steps that can be taken to divert someone from shelter and an advocate’s role in determining whether diversion is a suitable approach for anyone seeking shelter services.
