saving lives by providing
immediate shelter

DVSTOP provides short-term emergency placement when Maricopa County domestic violence shelters are full. When a survivor calls the domestic violence hotline with a high risk of danger, A New Leaf provides them with a safe, temporary location or hotel.

Notably, DVSTOP also serves individuals and families that are difficult to place in domestic violence shelters. For example: late-term pregnancies, disabled individuals, large families, and men. Survivors and their children are provided with short-term housing and basic needs, until longer-term shelter or housing is available. By providing flexibility in serving domestic violence survivors, the DVSTOP program has saved countless lives.
