Community Partnerships and Innovative Practices Domestic Violence Shelter Fund Report SFY 2008(A.R.S. § 36-3007)

FISCAL YEAR 2007 DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SHELTER FUND REPORT This report represents data collection under the reporting system pursuant to A.R.S. § 36-3007. In preparing the report the Department consulted with the state coalition against domestic violence. The reporting system provides information on the population served, the types and usage of the services provided within the shelter, and the unmet needs of persons receiving shelter. $1.7 million is appropriated from the Domestic Violence Shelter Fund (DVSF), which is 12% of the total funds that the DES/CPIP had available for domestic violence emergency shelters. This shelter fund report is based upon fiscal year 2008 information that is available from the DES statewide contractor reporting system. POPULATION SERVED 10,623 adults and children received services in 30 shelters located in 13 counties. Of the total number served, children represent 47% of that figure. THE SERVICES PROVIDED 313,250 nights of shelter were provided to adults and children during the year. The shelters provided 38,408 hours of case management and 117,634 hours of individual and group counseling. In addition, 22,548 hotline calls were received during fiscal year 2008. UNMET NEED OF PERSONS WHO RECEIVE SERVICES All the domestic violence shelters receiving Domestic Violence Shelter Funds were surveyed at the end of the fiscal year. They were asked to determine the needs for victims and their families that go beyond the scope of services their shelters provide. The top need across the state continues to be affordable housing. Transportation, childcare, and legal assistance were all identified as much needed supports for victims and their families.

UNMET NEEDS OF PERSONS WHO RECEIVE SHELTER

At the end of fiscal year 2008, all the domestic violence shelters receiving Domestic Violence Shelter Funds were surveyed on the priority of unmet needs for women that go beyond the scope of services their shelter provides. The following is a summary of their responses: · Housing ­ There is a need for affordable housing upon leaving shelter, including transitional and permanent housing. · Financial Assistance ­ This broadly represents the need for funds for move-in costs, utility deposits, food, household items, medications and other necessities needed to establish and maintain independent living. · Transportation ­ This was another high priority throughout the state and includes access to public and private transportation, including vehicle repair costs. · Counseling ­ This category encompasses many needs including substance abuse and mental/behavioral health long-term therapy. · Medical ­ An example of the needs in the medical category is access to affordable dental services. · Legal Services ­ Under this category, the need was for attorneys to assist in all areas of family law, particularly with custody, visitation, and divorce proceedings. · Vocational ­ This category encompasses needs for training and employment that will give victims sustainable wages to support themselves and their families. · Child Care ­ The needs in this category address access to affordable childcare. · Special Needs ­ This category represents needs that did not clearly fit into the aforementioned areas such as specialized services for victims of domestic violence who also have dual diagnosis of mental health and substance abuse or for services for persons with a diagnosis of Seriously Mentally Ill (SMI).
