Residential Housing Services provide an essential stabilizing factor for families who have experienced domestic violence. Womanspace housing programs foster independence and self-sufficiency for domestic violence victims and their children. Participants for this program are accepted from the agency’s shelter and counseling programs.
Womanspace offers three housing programs; two transitional housing and one supervised living programs.
Barbara’s House is a short-term residential program, and Next Step, offers a 1 – 2 year longer-term residential program. Both transitional programs address emotional needs, financial stability, resolution of legal concerns, and child care options. The programs also focus on educational goals or job readiness skills as the women work toward self sufficiency.
The Womanspace Residential Awareness Program (WRAP) is a long-term supportive living program for developmentally disabled women. Womanspace is the only domestic violence agency in New Jersey to offer more than one type of transitional housing program; and a supervised living program for women with developmental disabilities.
