1.How many lives can we save just by funding housing for persons experiencing intimate partner violence? #ph260720 #DomesticViolenceAwarenessMonth #DVAM2021 #HousingISjustice
2.Domestic violence cases were up 35% in Baltimore during the stay at home order. That’s an average of 6 more calls per day to the police and 3 more calls per day to emergency hotlines. #ph260720 #HRM #DomesticViolenceAwarenessMonth #DVAM2021
3.Domestic violence affects 1 in 4 women and 1 in 10 men in their lifetime, BUT that is widely understood to be an undercount. cdc.gov/violencepreven… #ph260720 #DomesticViolenceAwarenessMonth #DVAM2021
4.A common question asked of people experiencing domestic violence: Why not just leave? Quick poll: How many people fleeing domestic violence could not access shelter or safe housing in 2020 on a single day in September? #ph260720 #DomesticViolenceAwarenessMonth #DVAM2021
5.Did you know? Even though the number of persons sheltered by domestic violence programs grows every year, the greatest unmet need expressed by survivors is still the need for shelter and housing? Averaging 63% of unmet requests from 2009-2020.

6.In fact, 80% of homeless mothers say they have experienced intimate partner violence in their lifetime. Think about that. 8 out of 10. That’s a LOT more than 1 in 4. academiccommons.columbia.edu/doi/10.7916/D8…

7.Arresting the abusive partner doesn’t make domestic violence survivors safe if they become homeless. The odds of housing instability are 4X higher for women who experience intimate partner violence. We need more funding for safe affordable housing! #ph260720 #HousingISjustice
8.Minimum wage in Baltimore is $11.75 per hour. This means a single parent fleeing violence would need to work the equivalent of 2.7 jobs to afford a two bedroom apartment in Baltimore. The Journey Home (journeyhomebaltimore.org) #WhyVictimsStay #HousingISjustice #ph260720
9.Putting more money into housing for survivors has big impact: In the Domestic Violence Housing First study, 96% of survivors were able to retain their housing for 18 months. Watch this video to learn more: #RapidRehousing #ph260720 #HousingISjustice
10. How many lives can we save with more funding for housing survivors of intimate partner violence? Maybe as many as 3,811 per day. But, really, no one should lose a single loved one to domestic violence. nnedv.org/about-us/dv-co… #ph260720 #DVAM2021 #HousingISjustice
