Women’s History Month is a time for celebration and an opportunity to reflect on the great progress that has been made and the contributions of women throughout the years. It is a month when we can reflect on the progress towards gender equality and the work that still needs to be done. Women are still facing wage disparities which significantly impact their livelihood. This in addition to experiencing domestic violence can and has led to women facing higher rates of housing insecurity. 

Women who experience domestic violence often struggle to secure and maintain stable housing. Housing instability is often impacted by retaliation from the person who caused harm, financial dependence, and mental and emotional trauma. Leaving an abusive environment is not easy when one’s financial resources are limited, and housing costs continue to skyrocket across the country. 

In Orange County, CA, the cost of living is 51% higher than the National Average. However, the typical guideline for housing affordability suggests that households should not spend more than 30% of their income on rent. Despite this recommendation, many households in Orange County are paying more than 30% of their income towards rent. This information can be discouraging for many households but even more so for those who are also experiencing domestic violence and human trafficking need to find safe housing. 

Radiant Futures is proud to offer services to survivors in need of safe housing. Through our Bridge Housing Programs, survivors can access immediate long-term housing services tailored to meet their needs. For more information on our services call our 24/7 Bilingual Helpline 1-877-531-5522″
