Shelter & Housing

The JCADV does not provide shelters at this time but networks with other agencies in the community. There are shelters across Jamaica that provide safe and temporary housing for victims and their children. Case managers and shelter advocates will assist victims and their families with information, referrals, and support to relocate and rebuild safe and stable homes. For more information on safe and supportive shelter and housing please contact:
