The Network provides a variety of services for members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community experiencing partner abuse. The organization also provides assistance and referrals to LGBT community members. The web site is in English and Spanish, is kept up-to-date, and has information helpful to the LGBT community.

Hotline

  • provides confidential emotional support, information, and safety planning for lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer and/or transgender (LGBQ/T) folks, as well as those in SM/kink and polyamorous communities who are being abused or have been abused by a partner. They also offer information and support to friends, family, or co-workers on the issue of domestic violence in LGBQ/T communities. All hotline staff are trained in domestic violence, peer counseling, crisis intervention, and safety planning.

Housing Pathways Program:

  • Safehome
    •  The Safehome program offers short-term (up to 1-month) emergency housing to survivors (individual or family) at a confidential location.  Safehome does not have one specific location; at any given time, it could be located anywhere in the state. Housing Pathways staff work with the survivor to select a location that feels safest for that survivor and best fits their current needs. The primary purpose of the Safehome program is to provide respite in a place that feels safe for the survivor.  Call the 24/7 hotline to receive updates about the status of space availability and to get connected with this service
  • Transitional Housing
    • Up to 2 years of financial support for housing. The type of housing is flexible and can look different for each survivor. Examples of Phase Two housing options include sober living programs, sublets, and apartments.

During both phases, participants can receive a wide range of services, such as advocacy, referrals, supportive counseling, and support group

Support Groups:

  • A confidential facilitated group for lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer and/or transgender survivors of partner abuse to share and listen to each other’s experiences, give and get peer support, feedback and information, and help with safety planning. You can receive support over the phone or in person. Call the Hotline to set up an interview with an advocate for the support group.
