Proposed Region 6 Shelter Beds & Office Outreach/Satellite Office Transitional Housing Scattered Housing Sites Mobile Offices Johnson County Scott County
DVIP has the only dedicated domestic violence shelter in a 13 county area, including Iowa City, Coralville, Cedar Rapids, Waterloo and Cedar Falls. What do you say when the shelter is full? Our requests for shelter have increased 37% in the past three years.
Iowa currently funds 27 domestic violence and sexual assault programs. In July, Iowa will fund per region: 1-2 Domestic Violence Shelters 1 Domestic Violence Comprehensive Services Program 1 Sexual Assault Program Only 18 Programs Will Be Funded. Region 6 will lose at least 80 of our 166 shelter beds.
