Housing Assistance

Safe Harbor manages two types of housing assistance programs for survivors of domestic violence and their children.

Our Housing Assistance Program (HAP) is available to survivors of domestic violence needing assistance with housing support who are currently engaged in Safe Harbor’s shelter and/or community-based programs. HAP provides secure and stable housing to survivors and their children by providing a percentage of rental and utility assistance. 

Housing Assistance

Our Rapid Re-Housing program provides short-term rental assistance (typically 3-4 months) to individuals and families impacted by domestic violence with the goal of helping clients quickly obtain housing, increase self-sufficiency, and maintain housing permanently. The Rapid Re-Housing Program is part of the Upstate Continuum of Care, working with survivors of domestic violence throughout the Upstate who are seeking housing assistance.

If you are a Safe Harbor client experiencing homelessness, please ask your advocate or counselor to connect you to someone who can complete a housing assessment with you. This assessment will inform you of which housing program(s) you are eligible for through the Upstate Continuum of Care. If you are eligible for any of the housing programs, you will be placed on the prioritization list and considered for housing opportunities.

If you are experiencing homelessness and not connected to Safe Harbor's services, please contact United Housing Connections (864.241.0462) or SHARE (864.269.0700) to complete a housing assessment to determine your eligibility for housing opportunities through the Upstate Continuum of Care. 

Safe Harbor's housing assistance includes case management and goal-setting for participants throughout their time in the programs, offering clients the opportunity to achieve goals toward stable housing and financial empowerment.
