On your journey, you will find home again.
It’s important to provide survivors with options as everyone’s path is different. With the support of Live Violence Free housing advocates, survivors access the housing program right for them with supportive services such as counseling, advocacy, and connections to community resources including rental agencies and property managers for prospective housing.
Our 12 bed, fully furnished shelter offers an alternative — a safe place where individuals and families can escape crisis and plan for a future free from violence. The initial point of contact between Live Violence Free and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault is through the crisis line. Once we get to know the survivor and their situation, we can start to discuss options like shelter.
Live Violence Free’s shelter is located in a residential area of South Lake Tahoe. The shelter’s address is kept confidential to maintain the anonymity and safety of participants. Our shelter is an ordinary house with a total of four bedrooms, two kitchens, two bathrooms, two living/dining rooms, and a play area outdoors for kids. The home is fully furnished and stocked with food. The shelter has a fenced yard and access to bicycles for seasonal use. This safe space is a great introduction to a life free from violence for individuals or families in crisis or transition.
