FavorHouse owns one transitional home, which is available for women and children leaving shelter and in need of long-term housing. Residents may stay up to two years. This allows for a transitional period which grants enough time for families to make life changing decisions, finish a degree or vocational training, establish a career and save money for a home. Several of our families have qualified and have purchased homes built by Habitat for Humanity.
FavorHouse administers a scholarship program available for domestic violence victims, who are no longer in an abusive relationship, who desire to return to college or train for a vocation. Funding is provided by a private foundation and WISP that believes education is the key to successful economic growth. With a career, survivors have the finances to care for their families and they are not forced to return to the abusive partner.
Batterers’ Intervention Program
FavorHouse has offered this program since 1991. The Duluth power and control model is used. The BIP is fee based.
