One of the most time-consuming and tedious tasks facing victim advocates is securing quick, safe emergency housing for survivors who are displaced. Whether it’s spending hours on the phone just to be told there are no available nearby shelter spaces or being unable to find a hotel that’s willing to use an alias name on a reservation for safety, emergency crisis housing is one of the most difficult to obtain yet pressing needs for victims of crime. This issue is only exacerbated by rural programs who operate in multi-county jurisdictions with little to no available shelter space to begin with. The presenters of this virtual session will describe Safe Stays, a tool designed by, and for, victim advocates to streamline searches for emergency housing options. Safe Stays allows advocates more time to do the important work of safety planning and resource navigation. Additionally, Safe Stays is a free-to-use, business-to-business hotel booking platform where agencies can book hotel rooms for their clients under alias names with no ID or credit card requirements at check-in. During this virtual session, attendees will be taught the ins and outs of creating a hotel program to serve the needs of their clients seeking emergency housing.
