(1) an increasing number of victims of domestic violence are forced to leave their
homes to ensure their life, safety, and welfare;
(2) victims of domestic violence and their children often are economically dependent
on the abuser and have no place to live outside the household; and
(3) in the past, these victims of domestic violence have been ignored and, therefore,
there is a lack of counseling, service, and quality emergency public or private housing
to provide a place to live for these victims of domestic violence and their children.
