Domestic violence is the #1 cause of homeless females. Statistics indicate that more than 25% of women in emergency and transitional homes or shelters were victims of domestic violence.
Because Federal legislation mandates a maximum of 45 days in an emergency shelter, many women leave the shelters with nowhere to turn. Unfortunately, many of these women return to their abusers for this very reason.
Lack of transitional housing is one of many disparities in Broward County. Lady Be Free has a goal to expand its current service offerings toward the purchase of a transitional home. This home would serve as a residence to homeless survivors of domestic violence exiting a shelter environment.
