Domestic Violence Program

Domestic violence can take many forms. It is not only physical abuse. Domestic violence can be emotional, verbal, sexual, economic, spiritual and psychological. It can and does happen to all kinds of people, regardless of their age, gender, income, education or ethnicity.

 

We can help. Call our 24-hour Crisis Hotline: 281-342-HELP (4357).

Housing assistance

Fort Bend Women’s Center is one of a number of domestic violence service providers that is participating in Coordinated Access to housing.  Coordinated Access is a regional housing system required by the Department of Housing and Urban Affairs (HUD) that prioritizes applicants according to the results of their individual assessments.

 

All Fort Bend Women’s Center clients seeking housing must complete an assessment at intake.  The results are entered into the Coordinated Entry database for prioritization and selection if threshold is met.

 

We currently offer two housing programs for survivors who are on a low income, homeless or who need to relocate because of fears for their personal safety as a result of domestic and/or sexual violence through the coordinated entry system:

 

– Rapid Rehousing Program– short term housing, available for up to 12 months

 

– Wellness & Stability Program– long term housing for survivors with a disabling mental health condition verified by a licensed mental health provider to apply. Accommodation is available at one of the program’s existing housing complexes or within a 5-mile radius. Clients in this program receive additional support from onsite case managers, child mentor, and counselor.
