Announcing New Housing Funds for Survivors of Domestic Violence

Compass Center for Women and Families is excited to announce that we can now provide funding to help survivors of domestic abuse and their children afford safe housing.

Compass Center’s new “Housing Micro-grant Program” begins  today, Tuesday, January 15th.  Through this program survivors of domestic abuse will receive funds to support rent, utilities, deposit assistance, and moving expenses for up to 120 days.  In order to qualify for this program, applicants must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Live in Orange County or have fled Orange County as a result of domestic violence. 
  • Be fleeing a domestic violence situation or have fled a domestic violence situation in the past 18 months. 
  • Be able to attain a lease in their own name and provide documentation.

Please note that the Housing Micro-Grant Program is meant to assist survivors in attaining long-term housing and cannot assist with immediate crisis needs or maintaining current housing.
