  • Shelter Exit Program - (SHE)

    Program Description
    Shelter Exit Program provides security deposits and rental assistance to victims of domestic violence and their children who are currently living in shelters or in transitional housing facilities. Its main goal is to move women living in shelters and transitional units into permanent housing - a place they can call home and a place to start their lives over, free from domestic violence.

    Eligibility
    Participants must be referred to DCA by a Lead Domestic Violence Agency and their income cannot exceed 80% of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development' (HUD) median income for the area in which she chooses to live.

    How The Program Works
    The New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA) Division on Women (DOW) and the Division of Housing (DH) have partnered to make SHE practical and available to women who need help. The divisions will work closely with domestic violence women's shelters statewide to provide program training to shelter staff and will allocate short-and-long-term housing assistance to women who have come to their shelters for assistance.

    • Short-term assistance provides help with security deposit and up to two months rent.

    • Long-term assistance provides help with security deposit and up to two-year rental subsidy.

    For additional information call 609-633-9183 or email Joyce Rowe.

  • The R.O.S.E Fund

    The R.O.S.E Fund (Regaining One’s Self Esteem) is a non-profit organization that assists victims of domestic violence by granting funds for educational scholarships or for facial reconstructive surgeries.

  • Victims of Crime Compensation Office

    The Victims of Crime Compensation Board helps with costs related to injuries received in a violent crime. In domestic violence cases, this also includes loss of income/support from the offender and emergency relocation costs.

  • New Jersey Address Confidentiality Program (from the New Jersey Coalition for Battered Women)

    1-877-218-9133

    The Address Confidentiality Program assists victims of domestic violence who have relocated and want to keep their addresses private so the batterer will not know where to find them. Program offers a substitute address service as well as a protected record service.
