HOME Cohort

The Housing Opportunities Mean Everything (HOME) Cohort is a multi-year project to advance and amplify the work of an existing, well-connected and trained network of community-based advocates to advance gender justice in California.

What is HOME?

The cohort consists of 7 organizations working to improve the safety and economic security of women in California who are experiencing homelessness due to domestic violence. All participating organizations are Women’s Policy Institute (WPI) alums. The HOME Cohort is funded through a joint partnership with The Women’s Foundation California, Fondation CHANEL (FC), Blue Shield of California, and the Hilton Conrad Foundation.

How We Work

The HOME Cohort meets on a regular basis to improve the safety and economic security of women in California who are experiencing homelessness due to domestic violence, through a combined approach of strengthening and innovating service delivery, building the power of women-led organizations and movements, and advocating for structural change in housing and domestic violence policies and services.
