The Durham Housing Authority recognizes Domestic Violence Awareness and Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Domestic Violence During the Pandemic: Resources for Victims and Survivors

Each year about 10 million people become victims of domestic violence. And unfortunately in the past few years, the pandemic has added further strain to those in abusive situations. For those on the road to recovery, one of the most difficult challenges in finding independence from an abusive situation is solving for housing safety and securing transportation when leaving an abuser. 

With all of this in mind, Bankrate team felt it was important to create the Securing Housing After Domestic Violence Guide.

The guide includes:

  • Actionable steps for creating a plan to leave
  • Financial and housing resources for different stages
  • Free or low cost transportation options for leaving
  • Legal resources to help you know your rights
