DVSTOP provides short-term emergency placement when Maricopa County domestic violence shelters are full.

This assistance is provided at the direction of the call operator and set criteria, this emergency assistance is not guaranteed for all callers.
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.
