Survivors fleeing domestic violence do not have immediate access to housing, trapping them between homelessness and returning to abuse. Many emergency shelters and transitional houses are hard to access, have rigorous screening processes, and are simply at full capacity. Sharespace was developed in close consultation with advocates and social workers who currently struggle to help survivors find appropriate transitional housing. Our tool builds a community of support to provide immediate, flexible housing to survivors in urgent need.
