Everyone deserves to feel safe and secure in their home.

Unfortunately, victims of crime often face housing issues.

Safety at home

Sometimes, a victim needs to make their home more secure by changing their locks or improving security. If you are a victim of crime who is facing safety issues at home, the information in this section will help you understand your options.

Early Lease Termination

Sometimes, a victim needs to leave their home to find safety elsewhere. You can end your rental agreement early if you are a victim of domestic violence.


Sometimes, a victim faces the loss of their home through eviction. An eviction is a court judgment giving a landlord permission to have a tenant removed from their home because the tenant has broken their rental agreement.


Sometimes, a victim faces the loss of their home through foreclosure. A foreclosure is when a lender (such as a bank) takes a home back from a borrower who cannot repay their loan.
