Your support helps Urban Resource Institute transform the lives of people affected by domestic violence and homelessness, including individuals and families. Since 1980 we have been breaking barriers to seeking safety and creating positive, sustainable change through innovative prevention, intervention and shelter services and programs.

URI is the largest provider of domestic violence shelter services in the U.S., as well as a leading provider of shelter and services for homeless families, with the capacity to provide safe housing for 2,000 individuals a night, including adults, youth and children. In addition, URI offers a holistic, comprehensive approach to ending domestic violence and homelessness through innovative programs, including:

  • People and Animals Living Safely (PALS), unique shelters that allow domestic violence victims to live with their beloved pets. Only about 3% of DV shelters permit pets to live with their owners, yet 48% of victims say fear for their pets prevents them from fleeing to safety.
  • Relationship Abuse Prevention Program (RAPP) and Early RAPP help prevent abuse by working with some 40,000 students a year to teach them about healthy relationships.
  • Economic Empowerment Program addresses financial independence and job skills. About 98% of domestic abuse includes financial abuse.
  • Abusive Partner Intervention Program (APIP) works with perpetrators to break the cycle and prevent future abuse.

In 2020 URI celebrated 40 years of impact. Join us to continue to help vulnerable populations in times of crisis.
